All of a sudden, when I try to save a document in Word

Customer Question

All of a sudden, when I try to save a document in Word (2013) I receive an error message - Word not responding.
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your computer? And what version of Word are you using?
Customer: It's a Lenovo using Windows 10 and Office 2013
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: The last Windows update was installed about 2 weeks ago. After the update Word was functioning properly. After I encountered this problem today I checked and ran an Office update. That did not solve the problem.
JA: Anything else you want the Microsoft Office expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: All other Office products, Excel, Outlook are working correctly.

- Locate the Office/Word Application's listing and click to select it
- Click the Change button
