    Resolved [RESOLVED] Creating a desktop shortcut with Windows 8.1

    I've installed my Office product Office 2010 but can't get windows to let me create a shortcut on the desktop. In fact, I can't even see the program in program files (x86). As I know it's clearly a 32bit program i bought. Why isn't each part of Office showing in that file?

    The Office 2010 EXE files are located here-> C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14

    Right click and Send To Desktop should work.

    Thanks Steve. That worked. Both excel and word on desktop as shortcuts.

    Yep! I can't wait to get my desktop back with Windows 7 on it. This Windows 8.1 is driving me round the bend. LOL
