Windows 7: Can't find Microsoft Icons on my Start Menu

25 Oct 2011   #1

Can't find Microsoft Icons on my Start Menu

I can open Word, PowerPoint, Excel, ...ect Files
But I can't find the applications on my start Menu

Is there anyway to restore them on there or should I reinstall Microsoft ?

There is a way , Office Icons Change or Repair , but I shouldn't suggest you this one , it is too laborious

If you reinstall MS Office over the existing installation , you will get your office icons back .

Now, what is most important is to retain the icons there . So , I'd suggest you to stop using your third party registry cleaners (like tuneup utilities) . Only one program that I can recommend you is CCleaner - Free version . It doesnot delete the installer folder (where these icons and uninstallers are stored) like the others.
