  1. Best answer
    open the program

    and on the program icon in task bar right click and choose send to desktop (create shortcut)

    or from the new tiles interface right click program/app select pin to task bar--then go to desk top

    then you can also do the earlier

    on the program icon in task bar right click and choose send to desktop (create shortcut)
  2. Hello,

    Have to remember that Office is not a program, it's a folder containing the Office applications, like Word etc. When you install Office 2010 or 2013 in Win-8, it will place the individual applications as a tile on the start menu, or in the all apps screen.
    There you right click, pin to task bar, and away you go.

    You can create a shortcut of the application itself, but you have to locate for example Winword.exe, and creat a shortcut from that exe file to the desktop and then the taskbar.

  4. Okay - so before I researched how to create a shortcut, I tried it. Now I need to put the shortcut back on my programs list....how do I do that?
