Default Creators update messed up Outlook 2016 - slightly O.T.

The machine my wife uses came with 10 and the all the updates have
installed without a hitch. But after the latest one, there is a minor
issue with Outlook 2016 for which I've yet to find an answer. When it is
first opened, all looks normal and new email arrives and shows in the
Inbox. But you cannot do anything at that point. It is as if everywhere
that should be "clickable" isn't - the mouse cursor doesn't change shape,
the buttons don't do anything. The only recourse is to close Outlook and
open it again. Then everything works. ?

Open an Office application, at Account, use the update button to update
Office.

Forgot to mention. I tried the Repair option for Office 365 in Programs
and Features. There are two choices - a "quick repair" one and a long one.
Neither made a difference.

Some ideas here.

https://www.qdoscc.com/blog/outlook-...oading-profile

Is it possible a permissions dialog has opened *behind* the
Outlook pane ? I have to mention that, as an excuse to freeze up.

If a program is not responding, at some point (using Task Manager
or otherwise), you should get some idea it is not responding.
If the interface still accepts input events and just discards
them, then the program is actually alive. And what they've
done (block while syncing) is a design decision - most
normal human programmers would put up a status message in
a status bar, if the program was modal and was wont to run off
and do things like that. You should always design programs
so that the user will know what's going on. It's
better to say "Syncing..." in a status bar and freeze,
than to just freeze.

And that article says Outlook 2016 has "hardware acceleration".
Who would have guessed that ? Do they have a game of
"Space Invaders" coded in there or something ?

Along with the two Repair options, I also did that. No difference
