Brand new Win 8 laptop, brand new Office 365 trial installation, lots of old MS Word files brought over from now defunct earlier laptop.  I can open and edit those files, no problem.  How to open Office or Word when I want to create a new file?  The install did not create any icons on the desktop or the quick launch bar.  I can go back to the tiles and launch Word from there ... but from the desktop?

 

Probably I am just being stupid?

 

Thanks,

All you need to do is in the metro interface, right click on the tile that you want to send to the desktop and click open file location on the bottom. Once the location is open, then right click the .exe file and choose send to then choose desktop (shortcut).

Even simpler, as I just found out while trying that.  In Metro interface, right click on the program tile (in this case MS Word) and select "pin to taskbar".  Done :)

 

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
