I have Windows 7. Every day I used Outlook. To start this program I used a shortcut on my desktop. To create this shortcut I pressed "Start" button, then "All programs", then opened folder "Microsoft Office", then found "Outlook" there and took it from there to my Desktop.

Yesterday I deleted my shortcut on the desktop. And, what is strange, I cannot see outlook through the "Start" menu.

So, what can I do now? Where can I find my outlook?

Default installatrion path is c:\program files\microsoft office\office12\outlook.exe You can create a shortcut from the .exe file and place it in your start menu and on your desktop.

Otherwise search for outlook.exe using search.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Joe. It helps. I was able to run outlook from the command prompt. I still need to find out how to make a shortcut but at least I can run the outlook. – Roman Feb 26 '10 at 9:04
In Windows explorer open the C Drive. Navigate through the folders to Program Files\microsoft office\office12. In that folder will be a file named Outlook.exe. Right click on this file and select create shortcut. This will create a shortcut in this folder. Drag this shortcut to the desktop and into your start menu. Let me know if this doesn't work for you. – Joe Taylor Feb 26 '10 at 9:33
