Microsoft Office versions 2019/2016/2013 come with various built-in features that are useful for users while working on a task. However, they also come with their own set of problems.
For example, having so many functions in an app can often cause it to crash, freeze, or slow down. And apparently the root of this problem is the graphics acceleration of the hardware.
