I have tried several different ways to get into MS Word. I have even shut down and restarted the computer. I can't tell from scroll through here if MS Word is down today or not. Is anyone else experiencing a problem with MS Word?

    Hi @CSWCLynn

    May I ask if Word can be used normally today?

    If not, I suggest you try following steps to have a check:

    • Press Win+R to open Run dialog.
    • Enter winword /safe to run Word in Safe Mode.
    • If it still fails, please check whether there is any error message and share with us.

    Then it's recommended to repair Office from Control Panel to have a look.

    Any updates, welcome to post back.
