Upgrade Word icon is missing in 2010.

Postby janny@me » Fri Aug 02, 2013 6:54 am

I had MS Office 2007, but now I have upgraded it to MS Office 2010. I can say everyting is fine here except one thing. An icon of MS Word W is missing and I have no idea about this. I went to the properties of MS Word, I found the Change Icon button is greyed out. Other icons like PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook etc. are there, only the Word icon is missing.
Does anybody know what is the cause of this and what is the fix for it. Any suggestions would be appriciated.
Thank you. :)

You may go to Start > All programs > Microsoft Office > Right click on Microsoft Word 2010 > point to Send to > click on Desktop (create shortcut).

I have already tried this. I created a shortcut of MS Word 2010 on my desktop, but the Word icon is still missing from the shortcut. Even it is missing under All programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Word 2010.
Any help.

Simply change the icon by running the WinWord.exe. But before this, make sure you are logged in as Administrator.
The WinWord.exe of MS Word is found in this path:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office
Or
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14
Hope this will help you.
