    I’ve been away for several days, and when I got home – I was no longer able to launch WINWORD from my desktop.  I got the message above (in the title).  All other MS apps work just fine (Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, etc)  I’m still able to open word files, but just can’t launch Word directly from it’s file location, from the start menu, or from the shortcut on my desktop.  I’m running Office Professional Plus 2013 on my desktop that is running Windows 10 (I know – I should be upgrading to 11, but I’m still leery!)

    So, although this isn’t a crisis – it is extremely annoying when I want to create a new word document – I have to open an existing document, clear out everything else, type my new document, and then “save as” a new file name.  I’m not sure if something happened in a recent update???  (My computer obviously rebooted while I was away.

    Any help or suggestions welcomed.  (I’ve run the “quick repair” as well as the “Online repair” from the settings/apps section.)
