    Sharing MS Office with other users


    Howdy, I have Office 2010 installed and I just added another user to my computer. Most of my installed programs are available to the other user but for some reason Office hasn't carried over. It's for my daughter and I want her to have access to Word for homework, etc. Does anyone know a way that I can share office with her user profile? Any help is most appreciated.

    Have you tried right-clicking on the Start Screen, accessing the all apps view, then finding the specific app in question and right-clicking that and selecting "pin to start"? Alternatively, you could try a repair (or full) install and see if you get the "install for all users" prompt but I don't use Office 2010 so I can't say for sure. Anyway, good luck.

Is it possible to grant another user the use of paid for games/apps when they sign into their Win8 account on the same PC/laptop? I would like them to be able to access them from the Start screen. If so, what is the process? Thanks
