Fixed and Solved – Excel 2013 Slow When Copy and Pasting From Cells

I dug for for a solution for this so I thought I would post my findings.

My systems were a huge delay when using copy and pasting in Excel 2013.  My sheet wasn’t even complex.

Here are the things that I have found help.

  1.  File/Options/Advanced/Disable “Automatically Flash Fill” and Disable Enable Auto complete.
  2.  File/Options/Advanced/Display Disable hardware graphics acceleration
  3.  Press Windows Key and U for Ease of Access Center.
  4. Go to “Use computer without a display”
  5. check the box “Turn off all unnecessary animations (when possible)”


That should help speed things up in Excel 2013 for you.



Fixed – Excel 2013 – There was a problem sending the command to the program

After I upgraded to Windows 10 my Excel 2013 would no longer work correctly. I got the following message:

“There was a problem sending the command to the program”

The fix was to right click on the shortcut and properties –>compatibility tab –> Un-Check “Run this program as an administrator”

After the above setting change I could then open excel files without issue.
