When you say task bar, I assume you mean the quick launch bar (typically located on the left hand side of the task bar).

Just drag and drop the icon into the quick launch area. If you want to find a short cut to the word executable without messing around just pull it out of the start menu onto the desktop then into the quick launch bar.

If you're using XP you will need to unlock the task bar first by right-clicking and selecting.

On the Microsoft Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Microsoft Office Shortcut Bar.

To Crow 55: When I tried your suggestion,the message came up that the feature I was trying to use is on a CD which I had to insert. I don't have a CD.
To Elliot2002: Dragging and dropping the icon into the quick launch area didn't work. The icon immediately went back to its place in the desktop.

Your answer worked after I put a second Microsoft Word icon
on the desktop.
