Word processing component of Office 2016.
Viewing and editing documents, Using MS login account, and getting downloads or templates, with some workarounds.
What does not
Logging onto microsoft account (solved) and saving documents (crash produced...annoyingly and Initially Save As crashed every time!)
This seems like a bug with recent documents or else with the Save As screen...not able to reproduce it though.
Changing some of the Save and Advanced Options including moving all the way down to 0 for Recent Documents/Folders, and now the problem is not reproducible again.
The login issue was easily solved after microsoft login page denies further access to valid email, but accepts it on the second attempt, so just use the same email and enter it twice is what I had to do.
What was not tested
Printing, Exporting or Importing from or into Word
Running embedded objects like Graphs, Charts, and Slides into Word
