When a user clicks on the restore icon of word 97, word disappears.  The user then right click on the task bar word icon and maximize before you can see word.

Check, maybe Word window was moved somewhere in corner of screen and all that you need to do is just minimise all active windows, set task bar option "disappear", find Word window on desk, move it in center and resize. :-) Good luck.

Indeed, it has presumably been moved to just off the visible screen.

Solution:

Restore Word.  With Word active, but not minimized or maximized, Alt-space M will select "move" from the application menu (the one with Restore, Move, Size, etc), then try various cursor keys to bring it into view.  Once part of the title bar is visible, it will become easier to use the mouse to drag it to a sensible place on the screen.

Using the cursor keys and then click the mouse worked.  Thanks
