Now I realize that the file I have is indeed quite massive at almost 1000 pages and 7.44MB, but Word is have great difficulties handling it. Worse, I can see that Word is barely using my PC's power, not going over 3% of it. Right now it's taking over 15 minutes just to save the damn thing, not to mention that it's lagging a lot. Is it really because the file is so long? Why is it having such a hard time with it? And most importantly: What can I do to make it not lag? And for the curious, my computer is an 8 core AMD FX-8150 3.6 GHz, 16 GB RAM @ 1866 MHz with a Corsair Neutron GTX SSD.
