FIX: Word 2016 Not Responding When Printing

Many Office 2016 users have been affected by an issue where World 2016 stops responding every single time they try to print a document. Users affected by this issue see that whenever they try to print a document on Word 2016, the application simply stops responding and becomes utterly and completely unusable. Word is one of the best, if not the absolute best, word processing programs out there for the Windows Operating System, which is why having it stop responding whenever you try to print a document can prove to be a pretty significant issue.

Thankfully, this problem can be fixed, and fixing it is pretty easy too. Many affected users have had success with fixing this issue by simply changing their default printer. However, if that doesn’t work, a surefire way to get rid of this problem is to simply uninstall Office 2016 using an easy fix tool designed specifically for this purpose and then reinstall it. In order to do so, you need to:
