Excel 2013 page layout flickering

New Contributor



I have an issue with excel 2013 randomly flickering when viewing a spreadsheet. It seems to be flickering through page layouts (see GIF below). 


We are running windows 10 on a dell 5420 with 16gb RAM.

Excel 2013 64 Bit 


Any help will be appreciated!


I have tried:

  • re-installing office 2013
  • Disabling / enabling  hardware graphics acceleration 
  • Changing resolution of the monitor

Try changing your default printer.


Thank you. Unfortunately this did not work. 

I would go for the Excel registry key at this point. Back it up first then delete it.
Thank you, Which registry key is this?
