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.
- File/Options/Advanced/Disable “Automatically Flash Fill” and Disable Enable Auto complete.
- File/Options/Advanced/Display Disable hardware graphics acceleration
- Press Windows Key and U for Ease of Access Center.
- Go to “Use computer without a display”
- check the box “Turn off all unnecessary animations (when possible)”
That should help speed things up in Excel 2013 for you.
