Missing Ms Access Icon



In windows 8.1 my colleague deleted the Icon short cut for Ms Access in titles screen as result we cannot lunch Ms Access to start a new database. For existing database we are still able to work normally because the actual Ms Access is not disturbed.
How do we bring it back the launch icon on the tiles? Any idea? I have checked in the recycle bin still there is nothing.

Navigate to the MSAccess.exe file.  The path is probably some variant on:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14

(or you can search for msaccess.exe)

Then right-click and select "Create Shortcut", and place the shortcut on your desktop (or wherever you want it).

Press the Win key or click on the Windows icon to get into the start menu. Then type "access". Now you should see MS Access in the result list in the right side-bar.

Right click on it, pin it to the start menu.

In win 10, you can also find it in the programs and drag it to where you want to see it among the tiles.  (Win 8 may have some variation on this drag-drop method)

If all else fails, you can simply close your "existing database"    File > Close
You should then the bare Access Program open.

Then, File > New to create a new database.
