    finding programs

    I took the Classic Shell off my computer and seemed to be doing pretty well with the Windows 8.1 format. But today I was going to start writing a document and couldn't find my Microsoft Office. I know it's here somewhere as I've used it recently. I figure it's probably staring me in the face. Where is it?

    Hello Jacoba,

    Check to see if it may be listed on your Apps screen.
    If so, then you could "Pin to Start" the program if you like to make it easier to find and open.

    Hope this helps,
