For quite some time, I faced a screen- flickering issue when using MS Word. The flicker happened when I typed or tried to save the file manually, which is basically CTRL+S. A quick Google search reveals many people have faced similar issues on their Windows 10 PC.

Here is a quick fix for such screen flickering issue with MS Word:

Step 1: Open a Word document on your PC.

Step 2: Click on the File button on the top left corner.

Step 3: At the bottom, you will notice “Options”. Click on it.

Step 4: Click on the Advanced from the pop-up screen.

Step 5: Here scroll down to find the Display section.

Step 6: Select the “Disable hardware graphics accelerator.”

Step 7: Click on Okay and exit.

The screen flickering issue should be fixed with this modification.
