Unable to close Word 2013

Did an install of Word 2013 on a users computer, everything works fine other than the fact you cannot close the app without doing a close program off task bar.  I can open and close but clicking on the x on top right does not work, nor does clicking on the top left, there is listed minimize maximize etc but close is grayed out and there is no exit option when clicking on file and selecting close document

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you tried with another user session ? It is working on thi ather session ?
If Yes >  it is the same problem; it's probably an OS problem.... so you have to correct it (maybe with OS reinstall).
If No > delete the user session and recreate it
There are a few reasons word might stay open:

1. File is being previewed in a file explorer window  (i.e. preview pane)
2. A word document has become hidden / invisible  (vba: application.visible = false)
3. Word might be used by another program  (Outlook, perhaps a PDF converter, internet explorer)
