Chapter 10. Mac Word Annoyances > CRASHES AND PERFORMANCE

CRASHES AND PERFORMANCE

Speed Up Startup

The Annoyance:

Word for the Mac takes forever and a day to start up.

The Fix:

Check that you haven't got two copies of the application on your Mac. One possibility is that you've installed Word or Office twice, but what's more likely is that you've tried to create an alias to Word by +Option-dragging and the Option key wasn't pressed far enough to register, so the Word executable has been copied instead.
