    Office 2007 Start Menu shortcuts

    XPSP2 - Office 2007. The Properties of the Start menu shortcuts do not show the target of the shortcut, only "Microsoft Office Professional 2007", and it is not an editable field. As I have lost most of my shortcuts by fooling around with the Start Menu, I need to create now shortcuts for Office Applications and Microsoft Office Tools I can create some of them by browsing through the Program Files folder. Some are totally obvious, such as WINWORD.EXE, but others I have to guess at. Is there a listing for the actual EXE files corresponding to all of the Office components?

    Joe,

    Thanks for the info. Where did you dig it up, or is it just a case of slogging through the disk. BTW - any idea why MS hide the shortcut targets????

    Just looking through the install folder. Those shortcuts have special properties.
