Office 2016 (latest build) hangs when pressing save as. I've opened a case with Microsoft and they aren't much help but when my PC (Windows 10 and Server 2016) users try to save as Word, Excel, PowerPoint takes 30seconds to 5 minutes to display the save-as dialogue.

At first thought it was a network issue so I saved a .pptx file to the desktop, opened it, and tried a save-as with the same result. Has anyone experienced an issue like this?
