    Exclamation Office

    Anyone know why I can't find the Microsoft office that I loaded on my new windows ten ? Well it clearly did not as I can't find it , but I put the proper codes from the cover and followed the installation? A friend said it should come up as an app, but it,s not an app , is it ?

    What version of Office? Were there any messages that popped up during the install?

    Hi Joe, it was Microsoft Office XP small business, it seemed to install OK , usual promts and asked for the codes which I entered, all seemed fine, until I tried to find the programme to do some writing . I,m still learning about W ten and where to find things, I liked the list of progammes with the previous ssytems.

    Have you thoroughly examined the start menu | all apps?

    I've installed Office 2003 and later on Win10 and it usually shows up in Apps alphabetically under M then Microsoft Office.

    That's where it showed up for office 2013 on mine also. Took me a little bit to find it but it was there.
    @Peterthepilot, look in Programs and features to see if it is listed there as installed.

    No folder for Office 2016. Individual apps alphabetically by "normal" names such as Access, Excel, Outlook, etc.

    Right click the start button and click on Programs and Features. It will show all installed programs. It's where you go if you want to uninstall/change a program.

    This doesn't show the installed Modern apps, just the old Desktop apps. The All Apps list shows both types.

    Yes that's true Jerry but it would show if his Office installed and I got the impression from his question to me, that he didn't know how to find the Programs and Features.
