    2 Questions regarding the amazing Start Button


    I've two questions concerning the Start Button;

    1) I have Word as an icon on the Taskbar but no way can I find it in the Start Button
    2) After bringing the machine out of Sleep or Hibernate, the Start Button is still up & showing. Is there a way to have that not showing when the unit comes out of S. & H.
    Thanks for any help given!

    Stuck on 16299, RS-4 won’t install

    Type word on search to find it

    and just click on an empty space on your desktop for start button to retract

    Done that ... Word still doesn't appear. When you say "click on an empty space on your desktop for start button to retract" ... do you mean by "desktop" that all programs should be shrunk down so I can just see the desktop? Please explain.

    When the Start menu pops up, click on either an open program or the wallpaper to close it.

    I agree that it's annoying that it shows up when you resume from sleep. But a simple click and it's gone.

    Thanks for the replies. I agree, it's no big deal, but assuming from your replies, I take it there's no way to have it not there when the computer comes out of sleep or hibernate.
    Do any of you know why the Start button never picked up Microsoft Word? I've got Microsoft Notepad but no Word. It's simply not there. I'm wondering if I didn't have it on the Taskbar from Windows 8.1, would I be able to access it at all. Sweet!!!

    The shortcut might not have been transferred from your previous OS. Basically, the Start menu is a huge folder of shortcuts to your programs, so this problem is pretty easy to fix. Navigate to Word (probably under C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office), right click Word.exe or a file with a similar name in the EXE format, click Send To > Desktop, rename the shortcut on the desktop to whatever you'd like, then go to the C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs directory (you need to have hidden files enabled, tutorial here: How to see hidden files in Windows 8) and paste in the shortcut to have it as a single item or make a folder called Office and drag it into that folder and Word will show up under the category "Office". I'll guide you through it in a few pics (which I'll upload soon).

    How are you waking the system out of sleep and hibernate? For example I use "Esc" on the keyboard (my mouse is disabled from waking the system) and Start is not up when it wakes.

    I have just installed Office and Word (and other Office applications) appeared under "All Apps" in the letter "M" section in a folder called "Microsoft Office". In 8 the icons were separate but in 10 it seems they are put in a folder.

    If you go there you can right click and take the "Pin to Start" option if you like.
