Word, Excel versions 2016 et al taking a long time to start? Some people report startup times of 60 seconds, even on Macs with solid-state storage!
Try the following, which rebuilds the dyld cache. Please don’t contact me saying this doesn’t do anything. It’s true that it shouldn’t help on a technical level but somehow it does appear to help those using Microsoft Office 2016 and who have long startup times for those apps. Go figure.
- Open a Terminal window, which you’ll find in the Utilities folder of the Applications list in Finder.
- Type the following two commands, one after the other, giving each time to finish. Note that you’ll be prompted for your login password. This is fine.
sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -debug sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force
- Reboot your Mac.
