If a Microsoft Office Application is not working correctly (such as Word or Outlook), sometimes repairing the Office suite will fix the issue. You may need to restart your computer after completing the steps below. 

Note: Please save and close any work that you have open as this repair will force close any open Office applications.

2. Scroll down and select Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus and then select Modify
