MS Office Icons problem

  belayer 21:31 13 Nov 2010

just bought a new copy of Office (Home & Student) and installed in on my new laptop. I have dragged and dropped the start up iconsonto the desktop but the Word and Powerpointicons won't appear, just a generic symbol type icon for both of them.

Any body got any idea how to get the proper icon on my desktop?

Why drag and drop?

Go to start/all programs/Microsoft Office right click on the icon and select send to/Desktop (create shortcut)

If win7 you could also select pin to taskbar.

Thanks, that worked fine. I am sure the old versions were drag and drop, i had no idea it had changed.
