Word has been working fine up until the last update of Windows 10. When trying to connect, the logo appears and says " starting" which seems to go for ever but nothing happens.

Assuming you are talking about Microsoft "Word" have you tried locating it in
Control Panel -> Programs and Feature
Most MS Office products come with a "Repair" function, whether individual or the whole productivity suite.
IF you select it in Programs and Features you should be able to use the "Change" button to evoke the "Repair" option.
You might give that a go.

Failing that you might want to perform an uninstall, reboot and reinstall.
Not particularly elegant but it generally works, most of the time.

Thank you for info. Looked in list of programs and apps and Microsoft Word isn't listed at all although the app appears at Start Up. So perhaps will try reinstalling.

IF it is part of the Office Suite of software, it won't be listed individually as "Word" but may be listed as Microsoft Office
