Your shortcuts may not work after updating to Microsoft 365 Apps. Office 365 uses a different file path than Microsoft 365 Apps, so icons on your desktop and start menu will need to be manually updated. These steps will show how to fix the start menu, but a similar process can be used to fix your taskbar.
Right click the start menu tiles that are out of date.
Select [Unpin from Start] for start menu or [Unpin from Taskbar] for the taskbar.
Press the Windows Key and type the name of the program you want to re-pin.
Right click the program and select [Pin to Start] to get the start menu shortcut. To pin to the taskbar open the program and right click the program's icon in the taskbar and choose [Pin to Taskbar].
Your shortcut is updated!
