"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.

Completely uninstall Office 2016, restart, install it and patch fully. Patches within the last week or so.

If that does not work, make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and test the Office apps.
