Not a fan of the start screen that shows up when open Word 2013?
Rather have word open to a blank document? Here’s how to make it happen. Open a document in Word 2013. Click the File tab and then select options from menu at the left.
A window will open with General options. At the bottom of the window, uncheck the box next to Show the start screen when application starts and choose OK. The next time you open Word, it will open to a blank document.
