    Default can't find my Microsoft Office in windows 8 CP

    Hi all,

    Before I installed windows 8 CP, I have installed microsoft office 10. After I installed windows 8 consumer preview, I can't find my Microsoft Office anymore and can't open any documents.

    How can I get my office back? Where can I find my Office on Windows 8?

    Thanksss..

    You will have to reinstall the Office app. When you installed Win 8 CP it overwrote all your OS. All apps need to be re-installed. As long as you have to go to that trouble anyway you might want to install Win 8 RP (this is the latest beta release) instead of the older Win 8 CP. Follow this method.

    Have you searched it in start screen? Press windows key + q, and you can see search box. Try to type "microsoft office" to see if its there.

    That is the best option. As I said when installing Win 8 RP you overwrote your previous installation. You might perhaps have a folder called windows.old on your C Drive which will contain your data, but the app will need to be re-installed.
