I recently followed the prompt to update my MS operating System, 10. Now when I create a file and try to save it, Word stops working. This is very problematic to getting work done. What's the fix?

Technician's Assistant: Is your Word file saved to cloud storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive?

No. I'm just trying to save it to a directory on my PC.
