With Office 2010 I had a shortcut on my machine so that CTL+ALT+W
would launch MS WORD 2010 and load a particular file that I use for keep a manual log of activities.

In office 2010 windows 7 - this worked just fine.
The shortcut I used had a target of:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD.EXE" /q  "H:\My Documents\$$ LogsNew\zzz Log of all activities.docm"

Now, with Office 2013 - aka Office15 - I can't find a similar way to launch WINWORD.EXE because I can't find WINWORD.exe.

I have an OFFICE15 folder in both PROGRAMS and PROGRAMS (X86) -
But, I can't find WINWORD.EXE.
thanks
Phil

You do not see it under C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15?

All of your executable's should be in this location.

Depending on 32-bit or 64-bit operating systems, your office 2013 programs are here:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15

If you have installed the 32bit version it in here
winword
if you've installed the 64bit version then Program Files - not Program Files(x86)

Check both - just because your running 64bit does not mean you've installed 64bit Office !

Even for 32-bit Office 2013, the programs on a 64-bit host are in Program Files. Strange but correct. I checked my own machine and I made shortcuts for Word, Excel, and so on from

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15

One other option is to go to Start > type winword.exe and then right-clickopen file location.
