I have just re- installed MS Works 8 which includes Word but I cannot find a shortcut anywhere incl. my desktop or All progs in Start.

To open word I have to go through Start/ All Progs/Works Task Launcher then Word !

Where can I find a s/cut icon to put on my desktop / Start please

Go to Start/ All Progs/Works Task Launcher then Word

Right click it and select Copy.

Go to your Desktop, Right click, Paste shortcut.

That was quick! I tried your suggestion but when I open Works T/Launcher I get the Quick Tour page with a column on the right called Quick Launch which has Works Word Proc/ Works Sp/Sheet and Works Database shown.I normally click on the WP header and that opens Word. When I right click anywhere on the page nothing happens so I cannot copy as you suggest

No, don't open Works. Just navigate to where you start Word, Right click the icon and choose Copy.

Got it. Sorry misunderstood your original post.

Many thanks VoG
