    Ok so I just installed Office onto my macbook, and i can see Word, Excel and PowerPoint on my dock.. What I want to do is make a stack folder for office.. The problem is when i did this, Word, Excel or Powerpoint wont open and I get a message saying something like "reinstall in original location" or something similar with that. Basically I just want to know how to put my Word, Excel and PowerPoint into a Stack folder and be able to have the programs open... Thank you

    Create Aliases for your Office apps then put the aliases in a folder, then make that folder a stack.

    Right-click on the file, like Excel, and click "Make Alias"
