© Ugur Akinci

If you have a long MS Word 2007 document jam-packed with large images it can take forever to download and/or open them.

If all you’re trying to do is open the document and read the text, here is a solution for you: replace the images with place holders.

(1) Click the Office button and then select Word Options to display the Word Options screen.

(2) Select Advance to select the pane of advanced options.

(3) Click and select the Show Picture Placeholders check-box.

(4) Click OK to save your selection and close the Options screen.

Now your image will be replaced with a place-holder box and the Word file will open much faster.

Here is the before-after comparison:
