Office 15 has built in hardware graphics acceleration which can cause issues when running on a slow machine

To turn this office open any office product (Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.) Click File -> Options -> Advanced -> Scroll down to the “Display” section -> Uncheck “Disable hardware graphics acceleration” and restart office. (*See notes below*)

This should hopefully resolve the issue with Office 2013 being slow when compared with other software.

 

NOTE:

Some people have had the issue where it is unchecked by default and checking it resolves the issue.

This issue occurs where it is unchecked but you have a graphics card that wants to accelerate the feature (The opposite to the above but causes the same issue). In this case you should check the box.
