I did that and no matches come up.,
It worked. I have word on my desktop. I had a second part of my problem however. I have a document which is read only. When I try to delete it, it tells me that it is open in word and it won't let me make any changes to it. I think this has to be releated to my Word program disappearing off my desktop because both things happened about the same time. It seem to me like Word disappeared and took my document as hostage. Even after I shut the compter down completely and then open the doc again, it tells me that it is open in Word and I can't change it.
This is a document that I change all the time, so I am trying to edit it and then save it with the same name, but it won't let me save it with the same name. I have to change the document name every time I make a change on it.
