I was afraid it was me. I kept asking myself what I had done. But the thing is, Word was on my desktop, and the next time I turned on my computer, it was gone. It wasn’t in the Recycle Bin, either.

Re: Now, I've Lost Word from my Desktop
It's been a ongoing problem for several months now. Things just disappear from the desktop.

Your instructions worked perfectly. Thank you so much. Word is back on desktop and it only says “Word.” I won’t have to rename it.
Hi there. Here’s how to retrieve something from the ether, especially, an icon that’s usually on the desktop. If it’s not in the Recycle Bin, you can locate it using the search field on the Start Menu, click on the item you have searched, E.G. “Word”, right click on it, choose Open File Location, Word should show up there, right click on that, arrow down to Send to Desktop as a shortcut, boom, you should have Word back on your desktop.
I hope this information helps.
It’s beyond my skills to understand why this happens, but Word is no longer showing up on my desktop. How do I get it back? It’s still in my computer, just not where I want to grab it.
Thanks for any help.
