Tip for Excel, Word and PowerPoint 2013
Every time I open Excel, Word, or PowerPoint the Start Window displays. From the Start Window I must choose a template to open. There are multiple templates to choose from including an empty worksheet for Excel, a blank document for Word, an empty presentation for PowerPoint.
I want to bypass the Start Window and go directly into the application.
- Open Excel, Word, or PowerPoint and get to a blank document.
- Click on the File tab.
- From the menu on the left, choose Options.
- By default the General option is selected.
- At the bottom of the General window, within Start up options, remove the check from Show the Start screen when this application Starts.
- Click on OK
