Windows 7: Missing Word + Excel

Missing Word + Excel

I just upgraded Vista-->W7. Prior to doing so, my Vista install had a Word and Excel icon in the Taskbar + both applications appeared under Start, Programs, Microsoft Office. However, I cannot find either Word or Excel under Start Programs either under MSO or independently. The applications are present since they load if I click on one of their corresponding files.

What happened to the apps?

Thanks,

Mark

Type winword into the start search box - this should present a list of items matching this in the area above

Right click on the Winword item and choose Open file location - you can create short-cuts from here

Thanks--with the W7 addition of 'pin to' with the right click creating shortcuts from an .exe file are now super easy.

Am I missing something? That feature is in Windows XP and maybe earlier.

Edit - oh nevermind I guess you were referring to the 'pin to taskbar'.

No sound prompt in Word, Excel et al
In all previous versions of Office when you closed out of the program without saving the current document, the visual prompt also made an audible sound. I'm not getting any sound with the visible prompt. Is this normal?
