    Hi,

    I wanted to create a new Microsoft Word document on desktop but found that the MS word icon was missing in the 'New' column. Why is it that and how can I recover the icon?

    Thank you very much for your help:p:p:p

    Go into Control Panel > Programs and Features and repair Office, that should fix it.

    I can find the MS Office apps in the Start of Windows 10, but I just can't find it in the New Column (as shown in the attached image). Thanks for your help.

    Hmm... Did you recently install Office and if so is it activated?

    No, I installed it last year. But I've succeeded in restoring the MS Word icon in the context menu by installing New Menu Editor. Thanks very much for your help.:p:p:p:p
