Starting an Office Program
Unless you start an Office program, you can’t create a document, construct
a worksheet, or make a database. Many have tried to undertake these tasks
with mud and papier-mâché without starting a program first, but all have
failed.

How you start an Office program depends on which version of the Windows
operating system is on your computer. Read on.
Starting an Office program in Windows 7 and Vista
Here are the various ways to start an Office program on computers that run
Windows 7 and Windows Vista:
The old-fashioned way: Click the Start button, choose All
Programs Microsoft Office 2013, and then choose the program’s name
on the submenu.
The Start menu: Click the program’s name on the Start menu, as shown
in Figure 1-1. The Start menu is the menu you see when you click the
Start button. By placing a program’s name on the Start menu, you can
open the program simply by clicking the Start button and then clicking
the program’s name. To place an Office program on the Start menu:
1. Click the Start button and choose All Programs Microsoft Office
2013.
2. Move the pointer over the program’s name on the submenu, but
don’t click to select the program’s name.
3. Right-click the program’s name and choose Pin to Start Menu on
the shortcut menu that appears.
To remove a program’s name from the Start menu, right-click the
name and choose Remove from This List.
Desktop shortcut icon: Double-click the program’s shortcut icon (see
Figure 1-1). A shortcut icon is an icon you can double-click to do
something in a hurry. By creating a shortcut icon on the Windows desktop,
you can double-click the icon and immediately start an Office program.
To place an Office shortcut icon on the desktop:
1. Click the Start button and choose All Programs Microsoft Office
2013.
