  1. The easy fix is to open Google (Docs) in Edge. Fixed the problem. I’ll never go back to Chrome. Why? They can fix a basic problem? Microsoft seems to be on top of things.

  2. Thank you so much. That fixed my problem right away. I also switched the hardware acceleration back on after the relaunch and it’s still working fine.
