How to bypass the Office 2013 start screen

If you have started using Office 2013, then you have already experienced that Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint programs launch with a Start screen by default. However, iYogi Tech Tips will tell you a way of bypassing it, so that you start Office 2013 the way you want it.

As you start Office 2013, on the left side of the start screen, you find a list of recent documents and on the right side; you find a list of templates. You can bypass this start screen and directly go to the edit screen options.

  1. From the main edit screen, go to File>Options. You can also use the keyboard shortcut, ALT+F,T.
  2. Under the General Options tab, go to Startup options and then uncheck the box next to 'Show the Start screen when this application starts.'
  3. Repeat this step for each of the applications in Office 2013 suite.
  4. So, the next time you start your Office 2013 application, you will get the editor first and not the start screen.
