Hello, I have Microsoft Excel 2016 Installed on my Dell PC on Windows 10. I have a few .xlsb spreadsheets that are quite large that I work on almost daily. Every day at random, the window will freeze, so when I hover my cursor over a corner of the window so I can resize it, normally, the minimize, full screen, and close toolbar buttons at the top right, will resize along with the window. However, the window seems to freeze, and I can resize the window, but when I click on or in a cell, the window stays frozen. I have attached a few screenshots. I have already disabled all add-ins in case that was the issue. I have tried Quick Repair and Online Repair from Control Panel, and have rebooted my pc countless times. Any advice?

Have you tried changing the setting for hardware acceleration? File, Options, Advanced tab, Display section

@Jan Karel Pieterse yes, I just tried it and am still have the issue

Strange behavior indeed. I wouldn't really know what to advise without having access to one of those files I'm afraid.
