MS word offers the option of Microsoft Word 2010 (2) in the list of the start menu

Original title: program registration under Start button

Today, when I was looking for a program that is displayed when I select the Start button, I noticed that the number 2 see the next to registration for Microsoft Word 2010.  It looks now like this: Microsoft Word 2010 (2)

I don't think it was like that the other day when I finally used Word.  Any ideas on why it would start that looks like this?  I made no changes to my computer.

I use Microsoft 7 Home Premium.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Debba,.

-You have two entries in the start menu for Microsoft Word? One is Microsoft Windows Word 2010 (2) and the other is Microsoft Word 2010 Microsoft Office on the start menu?

-Is this Microsoft Word 2010 (2) successfully opened?

-This happens to you with other programs in the list?

If there are two icons for Microsoft Word 2010 on the Start menu, remove the icon of Windows of Microsoft Word 2010 (2).

All you have to do is click on Microsoft Word 2010 (2) and click on remove from this list.

This seems to be only a Microsoft Word 2010 shortcut added to the list of the start menu.

Hope this information helps. If you have any questions, please let us know.

  • Microsoft Word pinned to the Start Menu do not open the menu in the right sidebar

    With Excel in my Start menu when I put my cursor over them or click on the right arrow all my pinned documents appear.  Microsoft Word used to do that, but now nothing happens if I put my cursor over them or click the right arrow.  He worked and suddenly stopped.  Any suggestions?  All other start icons show documents pinned and recent programs or non-Microsoft.  I tried to remove it and then put it back and restarted my computer and tried again, neither worked.  Thank you.

  • Windows 7 Excel and Word 2010 jump lists appear only not on the Start Menu


    I would like to apologize if this is in the wrong section... I got here by looking at another thread, which ultimately does not solve my problem. I read the same solutions on dozens of different threads and not one has done something to help, so I thought I'd try to ask once again, indicating that I have tried and see if anyone has any other ideas!
    ... I also like to apologize if "jump list" is the wrong term. I mean, it is when I click on my Start Menu, and "Microsoft Word/Excel 2010" icon is the small arrow on the side right does not allow me to click everywhere for what files I recently consulted on Word. I have exactly the same problem in Excel 2010, but No problem at all for Powerpoint 2010 and it seems that programs such as Notepad and so forth are very well as well.
    What I did:
    1. right click on 'Taskbar', click 'Properties', select the "Start Menu" tab, under "Privacy", I checked the boxes ("Store and display recently opened programs in the start menu" and "Store and display recently opened items in the start menu and the taskbar").
    Make a right-click on 'Taskbar'-> properties-> select Menu-> customize-> items recent fact make it appear a list but less it is tab and not attached to the application (which is what I want to xD).
    My original problem was that the list of recent items for Word has not been updated and it was stuck on what he was about 3 months - which eventually prove needless after I lived my computer and deleted, renamed and moved a bunch of word documents! Unchecking the boxes got rid of the arrow completely, and when I checked hide them he refused to reappear for Word and Excel.
    2. I was at '% AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations' all files deleted from here and restarted my computer - ' 1b4dd67f29cb1962.automaticDestinations - ms' seem to be for the word, and I think that ' 3d961d1bb3da929c.automaticDestinations - ms' are to Excel. I have them I deleted, I moved it out of the folder, I renamed them, I sang for them, etc. etc. and every time it did not work.
    This seems to be a really popular solution that works for most of the time everybody... it does not work for me!
    I've also been to '% ' AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations and deleted everything from there.
    3. I checked that related to open different file extensions in Excel and Word programs are associated with Excel and Word. Everything seems to be strong in that Department.
    I use Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and fight with versions of Word and Excel 2010!
    Then... I don't think anyone has any other ideas?
    Thank you in advance!

    I emptied two recent used folders but did not work.   Then I fixed my office installation to add/remove programs in the control panel and that did the trick.  I have office 2007 and 2010 installed, but make sure that I only use 2010.  Will probably uninstall 2007.

  • The option change username isn't appearing any more in the start menu

    Hello, I have Vista Home Premium 64-bit. After several months of normal use, the option change user (fast user switching) has disappeared from the start menu. Why he's missing out, and more importantly: is there a way to restore this feature? I'm not aware of any change in my system. Thank you.

    Hello Rami,

    I think that your answer should have worked but... I solved the problem already yesterday! The solution was restore the system to a previous restore point, but these, like last month, when the rapid change of user feature still worked. It took me a few minutes to do and my data were unchanged.
    It seems that the problem came from one of the Microsoft updates. I got the system configured for automatic updates and these are quite common. I have now disabled the automatic update option as the system is stable as is.

    Thanks a lot for your help.


  • Windows Live Mail does not present as an option for default programs or in the Start Menu.

    Something happened this week. I can't identify enough exactly when so I can't say with certainty whether or not it is the new update of 2011.

    I use Windows Live Mail (desktop application) for the mail. It is installed and since I built the machine first. I've recently updated for 2011 through Windows Update. In the Start Menu, the default e-mail link no longer works. If I go to customize, I have the options of Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail, and Outlook. If I select Windows Live Mail, it launches a web browser to go to and use Hotmail (which I don't use).

    Now, if I choose Windows Mail, and then re - open Windows Live Mail manually, I can set it by default. In this case, when I go back into the Start Menu, the link is there but empty and you get a message that "the selected item is not available. It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted. You want to remove from the list? "I can't get around that. Under "Default programs" in the Control Panel, Windows Live Mail is not yet there. It's as if she is not yet installed, and whatever the shortcut points to (wherever it may be) is apparently nothing. In the registry, under HKLM/Software/customers/Mail, there is no key for 'DLLPath' and "LocalizedString" as there are other programs.

    I must point out that repair installation does not help and neither does file and reinstalling.

    I managed to solve the problem.  I received an email from another user and I'm sorry to say, I do not remember what were the instructions in the email.  The answer to (y) our problem used to exist on the web, until Microsoft has removed the old answers live site, or something like that.

    IIRC, I believe that it was fixing the misdirected registry keys.

  • I can still access my Manager tasks, Shut Down, restart, sleep, and Hibernate options went on the Start Menu After uninstalling Secure browser review.

    I recently downloaded Secure browser review for a test in Spanish for a class.  I uninstalled the program successfully, however I still can't access my Manager tasks, Shut Down, restart, sleep and Hibernate options went on the Start Menu.  Finally, before taking the test, my computer is always locked.  This means that whenever he 'slept' that I have to enter a password or use my HP SimplePass of fingerprint to unlock.  Now, it does not require a password, or it is not locked.

  • In Windows 7, don't right click on programs in the Start Menu gives no option.

    I just installed Windows 7 on my new PC.

    I want to be able to right click on the programs located in the Start Menu and different options available.  Now, if I click on a program listed in the Start Menu I get nothing ~ no menu appears.

    As a result, some of the things that I can't do are (1) pins a program in the Start Menu, pin (2) a program to the taskbar and (3) run a program as an administrator.

    If I right click on the same program located in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu\Programs".

    the right click menu is displayed and I can do all the functions that must be available by right clicking on the version of the program in the Start Menu.

    How do the right click on the programs located in the Start Menu works correctly?

  • Why a shortcut for Microsoft Update doesn't appear in the start menu as it always has in previous installations?

    In this latest new installation of Windows XP Pro when I upgraded from Windows Update, Microsoft Update no item does appear in the start menu in previous installations? Can I remove Microsoft Update and then reinstall it? Can I manually install the shortcut? I'm comfortable editing the registry.

    Off topic, I know, but you can work some magic for another problem. When I boot, when half of the icons appear in the notification area, I get a message that Windows Firewall is disabled. After the last icons appear, the message disappears and the firewall turns on again. It's annoying, and I'd love to [repair]. Thank you.

    Assuming that the message "the Windows Firewall is disabled" comes from the Security Center (Windows), looks like you see what we call a "race condition". Essentially, Security Center is loading before the Windows Firewall was fully charged (may be due to the amount of NAV system resources then uses what he loads and runs his own control over the firewall).

    Until the warning goes away in a few minutes, don't worry, you see a normal behavior (for Windows XP).

  • missing to stop options from the start menu

    Can someone please tell me how to get all the options on the start menu to close it has changed over the past week and shows just the icon arrow where I can choose only log off or lock and locking. to stop, I have to wait for th computer to disconnect and then when the screen saver appears click on the close button.
