Tip for some MS Office Programs' doesn't appearing in 'All Program'

Hello Everybody,
My self Vishal and I have Windows 7 ultimate installed on my laptop.
Once I accidentally deleted some applications of MS Office suite
vizards MS Access, MS Excel & MS Word from 'Microsoft Office'
folder appeared in 'All Program' list of start menu.
However later I restored all those successfully again.But later
I have found that the introductory tips that appear when we hover over
the mouse pointer over these applications is not appearing for the
above mentioned programs vizards MS Access, MS Excel & MS Word.
However these tips are appearing for all other programs in
office suite.
Now I want these tips to be appear again whenever I
hover my mouse over these programs names.What should I do?

Hello Vishal,

You could run the Office installation again to do a repair install that should hopefully restore it back to how it was in the Start Menu.

Hope this helps, :)

For each module do the following (example is in Word):

File > Options > Display > then check the box beside "Show tooltips on hover"...

If I understand that right, you lost the shortcuts for those programs in the start menu. What you could do is to create your own folder in C:\Users\whs\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu and put the shortcuts of the .exes of these programs into it.

whs, vishal restored them to the start menu but after that lost the tool tips.
i think irenes reply may solve it ,but it may be a corruption that as brink suggest may be a reinstall of office will fix it properly.
