Managing Shortcuts

I moved Outlook 2007 from the Start Menu to the Desktop. How do I move it back to the Start Menu, Microsoft Office folder?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1, Windows 8.1 Pro x64, Windows 10 Pro x64

The Microsoft Office shortcut folder for the start menu is located in

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office

Copy the shortcuts you moved back to that location.

ProgramData is a hidden folder

Ray hello and welcome mate as far as I know you just delete the desktop icon go to All programs find Word or whatever application you want and right click on it and click either pin to start menu or pin to taskbar.

In my pic you can see I have Excel and Word set on my taskbar as I find it the easiest and quickest way of pulling them up as you don't need to click on Start to get the start menu.

Oh and I am using 2007 on this but I do the same with the other machines using 2007 and 2010.
