I have been using Word 2016 on my MacBook Air for over a year with no problems. Now, it won't launch - at all. When I click the icon to open it in the tool bar, it bounces to show it is opening as usual but then just stops and nothing happens. I've also tried opening a Word document through finder, but nothing happens.


I can no longer use MS Word for Mac on my Sierra computer. All of my business documents are in this. Urgent situation. Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Word? I am not sure, but I always kept it updated with the most recent updates.

  1. Word Document Does Not Open on Mac. After the release of macOS 11, a number of Microsoft Office users complained about issues when opening a Word document on macOS Big Sur. Whenever the user tries to open a Microsoft Word file in Finder, the file does not automatically pop up. In other words, nothing happens.
  2. Go back up to the Library folder, next open the Preferences folder and move the following item to the Desktop: com.apple.desktop.plist. Launch System Preferences and test. If you still have the issue, put the com.apple.desktop.plist on the Desktop back into Preferences and post again.

However, if I try to remove the app, it says that Word is open and won't let me. So, my Mac thinks that Word is open, but nothing else shows that it is. If I right mouse click on the Word icon, it says that the application is not responding.

I have tried force quit and also rebooting, but it hasn't worked.


Any ideas?
