Create a desktop shortcut for an Office program

Applies to
Microsoft Office System

The Microsoft Office System does not automatically create a desktop shortcut for each Office program that is installed. However, you can easily create a desktop shortcut.

Create a desktop shortcut

  1. Using Microsoft Windows® XP, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Office, and then point to Microsoft Office program_name 2003.

 Note   If you are using Microsoft Windows 2000, you point to Programs instead of All Programs.

  1. Right-click Microsoft Office program_name 2003, point to Send To, and then click Desktop (create shortcut).

A shortcut for the Office program appears on your desktop.

To learn about additional ways to customize your desktop, click Start, and then click Help and Support (in Windows 2000, click Help).
