Hi,
Why to place a shortkey for Word or Outlook on desktop as long you can press Windows key, type the name of program like Outlook or Word and press enter. That will open that program. 
Is easyer and keeps the desktop clean.

Hello Ian

If you are running Windows 10 you can try the following:

Press the Windows Key
Type the name of the Microsoft program you want to run, Word, Excel etc.
When the one you want comes up, press the applications/context menu key Arrow down to Open File Location and press the Enter key When Windows File Explorer opens up focus should be on the executable program you selected Press the Applications/Context Menu key Press the letter N to go to the Send To menu Arrow down to Desktop Create Shortcut and press the Enter key Press control+F4 to close Windows File Explorer.

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but it will put the application shortcut you want to run on your Desktop making it easier to find later. You can always rename the shortcuts on your Desktop by pressing F2 when you are focused on one of them. This way you can delete the Word Microsoft if it is there. Then you can find them by first letter navigation. Or you can access the properties by pressing the applications/context menu key when you have a shortcut in focus. Then you can also assign a hotkey such as control+alt+W for Word.

Hope this helps.

Vic

Hello
I am thoroughly confused. I have downloaded and installed Office 365. I have been told the installation has completed and i am ready to go. However, when I do a search for any of the Office 365 programs, none of them are found.
However, when I open a disdocx file, it opens in Word. What is going on here and how can I get the list of Office programs to appear in the  program list? If I should need it, what is the microsoft accessibility phone number?

Iain
