Microsft Word icon is gone. [Solved/Closed]

Ask a question Nate - Last answered on Oct 4, 2012 at 11:16 AM
Hello,

I have a question. Until recently there has been a Micorosft icon on my desktop and it showed up under the "All Programs" list on my Start menu. About a week ago it disappeared from both of those places and also from the folder in my Program Files labelled Micosoft Office! I know I still have Word on my PC because I can open previously created documents in this program as well as open a new blank document in Word and save it, etc. What has happened to Microsoft Wrd? Thanks.

Go to microsoft office-- microsoft office tools-- microsoft office picture manager-- help-- detect and repair-- check restore my shortcuts while repairing.

This should restore all the microsoft office shortcuts

THIS IS ONLY A PARTIAL SOLUTION (or better saying an alternative use of Office shortcuts). The best answers are these of TYGR22 and BELCYNS.

Go to microsoft office-- microsoft office tools-- microsoft office picture manager-- help-- detect and repair-- check restore my shortcuts while repairing. This should restore all the microsoft office shortcuts (if it is a desktop shortcut, it may need to created again)

Awesome - this worked just fine. I did have to put in the MS Office CD that came with the computer so that it could finish. Thanks!

Launch - Microsoft Office Diagnostics (Start -> All Programs -> ->Microsoft Office -> Microsoft Office Tools -> Microsoft Office Diagnostics).
On the last Check all your assignment for office icons will be restored.
Sorry for my language.

My "Word" icon has disappeared. Can you help me. Obviously I can get into my word by going through a saved document. I have Office 2007.
