The first and most common solution is to run Microsoft AutoUpdate from within Office 2016 for Mac. You can stop work on one platform and pick up exactly where you left off on another—I tried it with the Mac, Windows, and iPad versions—and you can easily restore earlier versions of files saved to the cloud. Mind you, it's now around 11pm, I've been on the computer for over 15 hours fighting these problems. But now I'm forced to get a new Office, as Windows no longer support the old program. Also, running First Aid on the drive might help.
After that, relaunch the application to see if the problem is solved. After you log into the new test User, drag from Shared it actually copies your files to the Desktop for testing. Outlook 2011 never does this and works like a champ. Time to contact Microsoft Tech Support. You then simply select the Outlook account on your Mac to import and all your data will be transferred automatically. Normally, rows 1 and 2 would have been the first to disappear when you scroll the worksheet up.
I have been using Word 2016 for Mac since it was in beta, and it's never had this level of instability. Word just crashes or freezes. I've not been able to find a fix online for the problem. My total size is about 1. Every time it is opened, it will last for about a minute and then crash.
It did install, and did pick up my previous settings, so that was good. However, from the get-go it has been doing exactly the same thing on the new iMac. I think it starts processing and just hangs. It is a common problem. They're open the exact same day-hours I am, so when am I supposed to call them? I am an unpaid volunteer and do not work for Microsoft. And still there are issues.
I have on occasion seen removing Office 2011 fixed issues with Office 2016. Most features are almost identical those of the Windows versions, but not all. Got hold of a tech on chat.

I am finding it increasingly difficult to keep my usually friendly and polite manner of speaking. If the former, a two-punch update may be necessary -- one update for El Capitan, another for Office -- to stamp out the crashes because of an interdependency.
Files that you delete go straight to the Trash Can where they will remain until you delete them again, meaning they still take up space. Overall, Apple's suite is quite good. Type a short name if you do not want to use the short name that is automatically generated. For instance, make sure that no dialogue box is open. Have many files running simultaneously and interconnected, and many macros to streamline my work. OneNote is available and can be updated via the Mac App Store but Excel, Word, Powerpoint and Outlook have never been available in the Mac App Store. And the re-installation still failed at the same place.
Office 2 Restart the machine 3. I check every day for updates and with every new update my hopes are dashed within 30 minutes of using the product. This had not really happened on my Macbook but was happening regularly on my 2011 iMac over the past week or so. After an hour my connection came back, and I got an email form No. After installing updates, check if Outlook behaves normally. Aside from that, it seems to be working, but I need to access that tab in order to add the account for him to view.
Log into the new User. Everytime I open each Office Mac app it crashes after not even a minute. I use Excel extensively all day long for my work. Make sure to run only one or two big programs at once. The problem has been fixed in the latest update, however. Click Limitations, and then give that user permission to administer the computer. If all else fails and you simply cannot get your computer to stop freezing, you may need to wipe your drive.
