Starting in the last day in MS Word 2016 it is displaying a pop-up  as displayed below

How can I stop this 'feature' from happening?

Hi Jackie,

My Word 2016 doesn't have a Backstage View but it does have Options.

I opened the hyperlink and found it so 'busy' that I can't follow any of it.

In Options I selected Accessibility.  The Keep Accessibility Checker Running By Default. is unchecked.

I haven't changed any options but it appears to be working.  i.e. The pop-op isn't happening any more.

I'll see what happens in the next day or so and let you know the result.

Hi Jackie,

The pop-up remains off so something changed but I don't know what.

Thanks for the 'solution'.
