    is office 2007 compatible with windows 8.1?


    I just installed office 2007 on a new dell i5 8gig windows 8.1 pc.

    it's taking over 30 seconds for word to open a file.

    this can't be right! my windows 7 setup never was this slow.

    Any ideas?

    Hello Rhendrix,

    Yes, Office 2007 is compatible with Windows 8.1.

    Windows Compatibility Center: office 2007

    Do you have all the updated for Office (other Microsoft Software in Windows Update settings) installed from Windows Update?

    Absolutely compatible. Right swipe to Search box. Enter 'run programs', click 'Run programs made for previous versions of Windows' search result will take you to 'Program Compatibility Troubleshooter'. Let it run automatically by clicking 'Next' or use Advanced options to just select the ones you want to test for compatibility.
