Customer Question
I've lost the desktop...

I've lost the desktop icon for Windows Word. I must have hit the wrong button. Can you help?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Word?

I don't remember.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Word?

I was in the process of typing a letter and was trying to change the print type and hit a wrong button.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

I just want to get the software back so I can finish the letter. Thanks
