Word, Programs & Desk top Icon

  Confused! 22:31 13 Jul 2006

I think that I did something silly. In trying to get word as a shortcut on the desktop, I went in to start, programs, word and dragged it on to the desktop. I now have an icon on the desktop but 'word' has disappeared from my program list. I want to get the word icon on the kids' desktops and I don't know how to do it/where to find it. Can you hep

You moved it instead of copying it. There are lots of ways of copying it: right click and choose Send To... Desktop. Hold Ctrl down while dragging. Or Right click and drag, then choose copy here.

Oh, and drag it back from where it is now by moving it over the Start button and then over the All Progs link.

to put it back I would right click on the shortcut on the desktop then choose copy. Go and right click on the start button and choose open all users. click on programs folder then on microsoft office then right click in a space in the window and choose paste.
