    Hello Charliea, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Word should be listed on your Apps screen. You may need to scroll over further to see it though.

    Apps Screen - Open in Windows 8

    If you like, you could also "Pin to Start" them to have them on your Start screen as well.

    Start Screen - Pin or Unpin App, Folder, or Drive in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    mize well be rocket science. this sounds like what I would like to do butI am clueless.

    I have been struggling with computers for a long time, my first had 4 ram and for $120 I up graded to 16. I get it figured out then they change it again, this change is the hardest

    No worries. When you find it on your Apps screen, right click on it, and you'll see the "Pin to Start" option.

    The posted tutorial link will give you more details and options to help do so though.

    excellent thanks Also answered a question of how to remove all the clutter from the start bar. It is getting easier once I know what is going on
