The icons for my Microsoft Office 2007 have gone such as in this attachment

It should not look like this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Do the programs still work? If so, go to program files/microsoft office/office12 and make shortcuts to the programs you use. Sometimes when you reinstall office, the older installations shortcuts don't work. Also if you rename the shortcuts, the icons vanish too. Hope this helps.

Yes the programs still work. I have not reinstalled office nor have I renamed any shortcuts. The example which I gave was a picture of a template (a dotx file). All I want is the icon to be shown again (for example for Word the W sign)

Hello crumpy,

Maybe this will correct it:

In Word 2007, click the Office orb at the top-left corner of the window, then click the Word Options button at the bottom, then click Resources at the bottom of the column on the left, then click the Diagnose button to the right of "run Microsoft Office Diagnostics".

Just right click on a word docx, select properties, select change icon, hit ok when you get a missing message.
This will start a browse window. Point it at the word exe file in program files/microsoft office/office12 , and select an icon. OK/apply.

I think you have misunderstood what I have said. All my documents - .xls, .dotx etc have no icon - i don't want to manually change just one file, all the files with such endings have no icon and this is what i want to change.

In reply to the 7.46 post, the diagnosing thing said that there is nothing wrong with office

Try going to Control Panel...Folder Options...File Types tab
Scroll down to the documents that you want to associate and click on the Change button to change the program that's supposed to open it.
If that's OK, then you'll have to use the Advanced button to change the icons that are associate with that file type. You'll have to do it for each file type that's giving you a problem (ie - once for all .docx, once for all .xlsx, etc)

The only way that I know to change everything at once would be to uninstall and reinstall Office 2007
I've seen mention of a "repair" feature if you go to Add/Remove programs and start the uninstaller for Office - but can't verify it on my own system.
