Surface RT Tip: How to repair Office Home and Student 2013 RT

Office 2013 RT

One of the great features in Surface RT is that it bundles a free desktop version of Office Home and Student 2013 RT that includes Word, Excel, OneNote, and PowerPoint to keep you productive at work or at school creating and editing documents right into the tablet.

The one issue, though, is that if for any reason Office RT starts acting up and you need to repair it, when you go to Programs and Features to troubleshoot and fix the installation, you’ll find that Office Home and Student 2013 RT doesn’t appear in the list of installed programs in your Surface RT. Of course you have it installed, when you check the update history, Windows RT and updates for Microsoft Office 2013 RT are there.

Now the right question is: what is happening? Apparently it is a known issue that doesn’t register Office as an installed program. To resolve this issue Richard Hay from WindowsObserver has pointed out that Microsoft has crafted a Fix it that is described as KB2751424 that anyone can download and run to fix this issue.
