I had Microsoft Word 2013 on my computer. In deleting only the shortcut, the program disappeared from the computer and though my files were still there, I'd get an error message saying, "The operating system is not currently configured to run this application." On a help forum, I saw that this happened to many, many other people. The suggested fix was to go to programs, find Microsoft Office and choose 'Change' then 'Repair.' I ran it online with Microsoft and it seemingly fixed the problem because I saw Word 2013 appear in the start menu. When I click on it, I get the SAME error message and get that error message when clicking individual files. I don't know why it's still not working when everything on the computer is fine with all other programs.
