I have a Dell laptop that I'm trying to install Office on. I deleted the trial program and downloaded the software from VLC. I installed from that download and everything seemed to go okay but there is no icon on the desktop. It doesn't show up in Programs or anything.

I first tried Office 2013 Pro Plus. Since that didn't work, I tried Office 2010.  That didn't work either. In Windows Explorer I see the program folder but there are no executable files there either.

Um... no I don't have icon on Desktop either

Use the start screen, metro interface... is is prob all the way over on the right.  Or use the search and type in "Word"

On your desktop you can create a shortcut to:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD.EXE  (works for Word 2010 on Win 8)

Just right click (or hold down on screen) and select New > Shortcut then enter the address.

Hope this helps...
