Top of the line Surface Pro 4, Office 2016, Windows 10. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact. Dave The problem seems to be correlated with navigation search. I look forward to somebody figuring this out! Turn off Office 2013 animation without the Registry change There is one more way to turn off animation in Office 2013, which is common practice and widely suggested in the comments to the related articles. There does still seem to be some slowdown if the window is not maximised but not as much as when the window is maximised say 1 second to start reading a cell rather than 3.
It takes almost 2 sec for the word to react on scrolling and when it does it goes line by line. To be honest I think Excel is the only thing causing such a major issue at the moment in Office. It seems that recent versions of Excel 2016 has a totally new comments implementation. The slowdown is twofold - when you press say down arrow, the border around the current cell moves down. Excel doesn't display comments like Word does. I don't know why but your question has my spidey-sense tingling.
And are the spreadsheets they're accessing stored locally or on the network? Just thought I'd check though as I do not remember it being this slow before. Subsequent execution becomes very slow. Just a few thoughts, I apologize if you have already done this. The moderators just keep marking their answers as a resolution, but the issue is still happening. I've turned off animation, acceleration, enabled multi-threaded calculation, used reg-edit to enable high performance power mode relevant when not plugged in and still Excel is far more sluggish than I've seen in the past. I guess I need to start another thread.
For example, a user will open a spreadsheet and click on a cell to view a formula and it takes forever to get a response. I have attached an excell file which you can see the problem in. Sometimes it can take up to 2 seconds to move between cells. For example, in a worksheet I have a couple of pages with some small tables nothing fancy, the lag is terrible when scrolling up or down, I see part of the page still trying to load and with the black theme you can see like a third of the page blacking out top or bottom, depend which way you scroll. Have a question about this project? The comment is on cell A21. Note that Voiceover in Office Mac apps has the same problem: the more objects, the slower it goes.
I cannot wait for Microsoft to release an update. In previously opened files, I cannot see the edits I make, but they are there and can be saved. However, forgive me, your post doesn't mention how any of this is to be resolved. Same thing when I actually click on the scrolling bar of the document. When I maximise the window, this is when excel goes incredibly slow and I am seeing a 3 or 4 second lag. If you have this, it will make your fan run non-stop, slow everything else, and ruin battery life.
Incidentely I just have it reading cell coordinates, not boarders or other information beyond the text in the cells. The lag is horrible for me. The other issue I'm noticing, is that when you enter information in a cell and press enter to update it, nvda simply stops speaking for about a minute, at which point you can navigate around the cells again. I'm using Win 10 now, it took me a while to find this. I have tried disabling hardware graphics and disabling all addins e. Was close to downgrading to excel 10 but this restored my faith.
That is slower than usual but takes say 1 second for me. The slowdown is only on the sheet with the comment, but it seems to be the same anywhere on that sheet. Open a new spreadsheet and then click File, Account, Office Updates; when I've had problems, that seemed to fix them. I don't know why but your question has my spidey-sense tingling. Ultimately we do need to find a method of navigating large documents in Office that contain lots of comments and formatting, especially for people that use it in their jobs, as companys like mine think nothing of putting everything into Excel and filling it with dropdowns, comments, formula and lots of forms into Word. Does anyone know what else I could try? The registry values seem to have changed at some point. Surely there must be something we can do? Then there is the time between that and the contents of the newly focussed cell being read out, another two seconds.
Excel is still very slow in large sheets of data say over 100 rows and 7 columns wide, but it does help. I have seen this issue on many different types of coputer. I will note anything of importance here if it comes up. Please help if you can! I mucked about and tried to find a similar graphics folder, but was unsuccessful. Excel is still fairly unusuable with large sheets, we still have to use the formula bar when editing cells with f2 which does not always work if the formula is large, we still can't add comments or use dropdowns.
