    In the Alphabetical apps on the left banner, scroll down to the W's and click on Word. If you would like to create a shortcut tile on your desktop, drag Word to the desktop, If you just added Microsoft Office, Windows might not have had a chance to index the location. Once you search has indexed Word and the rest of the Office Suite, it will give the correct results

    Something is clearly not right, I think I'd start by doing a repair - Repair an Office application - Office Support
