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

Never mind

Right click on desktop

click on new

then click on New Microsoft word
Hello Ambucias,

Thanks for your response.
However, I am unable to solve the problem following your instruction.

I right clicked on desktop-clicked on new-then clicked on New Microsoft word.

I opened the new file but the Microsoft word icon doesn't change.

Thanks for your understanding.

Best regards,
Bikash

Consider restoring your system to a date where everything was working correctly
