    Lightbulb Word not allowing you to type anything

    If anyone logs onto any of a network of laptops and goes into Word , and you try and type something and nothing happens, you cannot write anything.

    The laptops have 2 versions of Office on them, 2010 and 2016 which cannot be a good thing, I have found that if you turn off Compatibility mode, then Word allows you to write on the page. Soon as you log off and on again ( no matter if it is system admin or a pupil, staff or visitor) then it goes back to not being able to write anything.

    I did remove Office 2010 from a few machines but when tested it still did the same thing.


    Apart from removing Office and reinstalling just the 2016 ( I have tried the repair options, no Joy) is there anything quicker that anyone has come across or is aware of? I wonder if there is a GPO fix for this?
