Hi,

This is related to the Win 8. I am in the “Desktop Mode”. I double- click the icon of “Folder” at the bottom tray; and I see the followings:

I.      Favorites
1)      Desktop
2)      Download
3)      Recent Places

II.      Libraries
1)      Documents
2)      Music
3)      Pictures
4)      Videos

III.      Computer

IV.      Network

I name this location as “HERE”


I have installed Microsoft Office 2010 at this computer.

My Question: How can I open this Microsoft Office (Microsoft Word) from “HERE”?

Thank you

tjie

I can get to this :

""" Open Computer > Local Disk C: > Program Files (or Program Files x86) > Microsoft Office > Office(Version number); here I select "Office12 ....; then I double-click "this Office12", BUT i did NOT see "Winword.exe"

Thanks

check in both the Program Files  and Program Files  (x86) folders, it may just say winword if file extensions are hidden
