  • Hi,

    So Word 2016 icon doesn't show on associated (.docx) files.

    Try to right click on any of the files, select "Open with..." from the context menu, then choose Word 2016 as the default application to open this type of files. Make sure to tick the checkbox of "Use this app for all .docx files."

    If this doesn't correct the issue, then I would suggest you repair Office installation from Control Panel, and see if issue persists. This will re-register all the Office applications as the default application for Office files.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

  • That did it.  Thanks.  Icon disappeared from the Taskbar when I had to do an online repair to Office.
