    Word Not in Microsoft Office Folder


    Hello,

    I'm running Windows 10 64-bit and noticed one day when opening my start menu to open up word that in the programs list (now called "all apps" for some reason) the launcher for Microsoft Office 2013 Word wasn't in the folder labeled "Microsoft Office" but rather, it was under the "W" section as its own program. I went into the file location, and all the applications are in a folder there, but for some reason in the start menu, it's not in the Microsoft Folder. This bugs me, and I can't find any way to edit the start menu's folders/programs etc. in Windows 10. Before I continue, I must say that I'm a little biased toward the older versions of Windows, and am rather dissatisfied with the way Microsoft is heading. That said, does anyone know how to fix this? I can't just drag it into a folder, and I can't find any "manage start menu" buttons or options anywhere! Please help me!

    You could pin them to your start menu

    Just right click on Word and pin it to start.

    Although this is do-able and works, I find it frustrating that it's not where it should be. I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I'd rather it be where it should be rather than simply developing a work-around. If anyone can find out how to fix the actual problem rather than find a way to deal with the problem, I'd appreciate that.

    Do you think uninstall MS Office 2013> reinstall will solve the problem ?

    Strange,
    I have a folder named Microsoft Office 2013 and when I open the folder it shows all the programs that come with office 2013.
    when you installed office, did you specify a folder that you want it installed in?
    that might explain it

    I had not considered that. However, Microsoft Office 2013 uses an online download method for purchasing their software for purposes of copy protection. Basically you have to get it from the internet, not a CD/DVD like older versions. Although this is possible, my main concern is that all of my saved documents that are Microsoft Office Word documents will somehow be affected, and I don't have the time, nor the capabilities to back up the immense amount of data saved on my computer. Any thoughts?

    I am afraid I don't have any ideas for you.

    Just one thing about online download of MS Office 2013. You may or may not interested to know.
    I was given a MS Office 2013 Home & Student as a gift.
    It comes with just the product key.
    I also had to download the software online.
    What I did was to download the iso > burn it to a DVD.
    I then installed it. It went smoothly.
    As I already have MS Office 2007 with 3 Home PC licenses, purchased and installed 5 years ago, I don't need the 2013 version. So, I uninstall it and shelve it.
    But I now have the installation DVD if I want to reinstall 2013.
