Troubleshoot and Fix Office 2013 Problems with Repair

If you’re having problems with any Office 2013 program like Word 2013, Excel 2013 or Outlook 2013, you can always perform a repair, which will try to fix any issues that may be causing the program to not load properly or  some other type of problem.

To repair Office 2013, you first have to open the Control Panel and then click on Programs and Features.

It’ll take some time to repair and once it has finished, you’ll see a message saying the configuration of Office 2013 is complete. You’ll then have to restart the computer in order for the repair to complete.

Repair is a great Office tool that I have used in many previous versions of Office to fix things like the Normal.dot template being changed in Word, Outlook PST and email problems, etc. If Office 2013 is running slow or having some other issue, try performing a repair and hopefully it will fix your problem. Enjoy!

    I just bought Dell 15 3537 from Costco. It came with Office 2013 trial. I tried to open it from the desktop and it will not open although it says it has been installed in the computer. Please help.
