Problem installing MS Office Home and Student 2007 on 8

I tried installing my MS Office Home and Student 2007 on my new Windows 8 computer. The installation seemed successful, but I cannot locate MS Word 2007. On the Windows 8 Start screen there are images/icons for Excel 2007, Power Point 2007, One Note 2007, but not for Word 2007. I double clicked on the Excel 2007 image and it opened up the program OK. However, I cannot find Word 2007. I also looked in Windows Explorer and cannot find the Office Home and Student 2007 files. I would be grateful if someone could tell me how to find Word 2007 on my Windows 8 computer. It seemed to have been installed successfully (from the install disk), but I simply cannot find it. Thank you for any help.

Hi there
First check that you DID select word at install time (or simply uninstall and re-install).

Then on Windows start screen simply type Word and you should see it.

You can then click Pin to taskbar to get a quick link. To pin to desktop select open file location and on the file location simply select send to desktop (create short cut).

Cheers

Hi Jimbo45,

thank you very much for your help! I was able to find Word and I pinned it to the taskbar as you suggested. Thanks again for the help - I really appreciate it.
