    I know, you made that clear, I just showed you a way to do it without having to go to the OFFICE15 folder to pin to the task bar like you said you did.

    And I showed you that clicking "Open Other Documents" takes you to the File menu you are looking for without opening any document.

    @area,

    Don't want to hijack your thread.

    Since RobR is here , and he seems to find just about anything really easy, maybe he would have a look at this:

    Area 66,

    Ok, I got it installed now. For me it placed the Office 2013 shorcuts on my Start screen by default. I cleaned them up a bit though. If you have the same, do you have the "Pin to taskbar" option like me below when you right click on only one of the Office apps?

    I also can pin Word 2013 to the desktop taskbar from the Start page. When I right click on Word 2013 on the Start page, the options at the bottom of the screen (as shown by Brink in his message) includes the ability to pin to the desktop taskbar. And this works in my testing.
