    Disappearance of option to open new Word doc when right-clicking dektop, and choosing "New"

    In desperation, after not getting the answer on the Vista.Genearl group, I'm
    posting this to as many groups as I think may be able to help as I suspect
    that the problem could occur in any MS operating system and is not Vista
    specific. It might just even be associated with MS Word itself.

    The problem is as stated in the subject. After I did a factory reformat of
    a pre-installed Vista Home Premium on an Acer Aspire L3600 and re-installed
    my apps, including MS Office 2007 Plus I found that when I right-click the
    desktop and choose "New", most of options to open a new folder, shortcut,
    Bitmap Image and documents in the Office suite are there except for MS Word.
    It used to be there, now it's not and as far as I can see it is the only one
    missing. In fact Word shows up when I installed MS Office on my wife's Dell
    laptop as a test. I've un- and re-installed the entire Office suite to no
    avail. How has this happened, but more importantly, how can I get it back
    in the list? It's the feature of the right-click procedure, other than
    opening a new folder, that I find the most useful.

    Fingers crossed.

    Regards,

    Bill

    That's nothing to do with Office, its a feature of your o/s settings
    There are simpler ways of creating a new Office doc via shortcut
    BTW why crosspost to an ME group, office 2007 doesn't run on ME
