    Office apps won’t open/ cannot be opened


    Hi, I’ve been encountering an issue for the past weeks with all the Office apps installed on my computer Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. When I try to open the apps from the taskbar, a notification says "Windows cannot find 'C:\Users\ld\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\QuickLauch\User Pinned\TaskBar\Word.lnk'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.' "

    A similar message appears with other Office apps.

    I’ve tried to open them from Start, but no matter how long I wait, they never open.

    I’ve tried reinstalling them, but it did not change anything.


    I would truly appreciate your help with this issue, thank you!

    :)
