Display not keeping up with the keyboard in MS Word?

So you’re typing away in Word, when you notice that the display hasn’t refreshed! But now you’ve stopped typing and you can see the sentence unfold infront of your eyes! What gives?

I’m not sure what causes the issue to occur in the first place at all, I’ve now had it happen twice. But the fix is relatively straight forward, if time consuming, especially if you have a slow internet connection I’m afraid.

Fire up the Windows Control Panel App and go the Programs section. From there click on the Programs and Features link and it should now display all the software installed on your PC. Scroll down to the office program, “Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2019”, in my case, and click on it. The menu should now show the three options: Organise, Uninstall and Change, it’s this last we want. Click on that and go for the “Online Repair” option and then click the “Repair” button, eventually it will come back and say it’s finished. And so far, well two out of two times, it’s fixed the lagging display issue.
