Technique to Disable Office 2013 Start Screen

When you open Microsoft Office 2013 program (Any of them like MS Word, MS Powerpoint, etc.), a start screen automatically displays showing the various templates available, list of recent documents opened in the left column, etc. Many of you find this screen annoying and want to avoid it, So here I am to help you guys!!

Method 1: Simple Process
From within the main edit screen, go to File > Options or use the keyboard shortcut, ALT+F, T. Under the General Options tab, go to Startup options and uncheck the box next to "Show the Start screen when this application starts." Perform the same steps for each of the applications in the Office 2013 suite.

The next time you launch your Office application, you'll get the editor first, rather than the start screen. Remember that you'll need to make the change in each of the Office 2013 applications where you want to disable the start screen.

Method 2: Registry Trick

Attention: We are playing with Registry Editor so.... Guys! Be sure to back up before making changes to the registry.

To open the registry editor, press the Windows Key + R to open the Run dialog box. Enter “regedit” (without the quotes) in the Open edit box and click OK.

Note: If the User Account Control dialog box displays, click Yes to continue. Depending on your User Account Control settings you may not see this dialog box.

Now, Just navigate to the following key:

Search the key called DisableBootToOfficeStart, listed in the right-hand pane. If it’s not in the list, create it by right-clicking on the General key in the tree on the left (or in an empty space in the right pane) and moving the cursor over New on the popup menu and selecting DWORD (32-bit) Value from the sub popup menu.

The new value is called New Value #1 by default and the text is highlighted.

Now, change the name to DisableBootToOfficeStart and double-click on it.

Change the value in the Value data edit box to 1 and click OK. This disables the Start Screen in all Office 2013 applications.

The value displayed changes to 1.

From now on, if you start any Office 2013 product, you won’t see the Start Screen. For instance, if you open Word 2013, it directly opens a new document. Enjoy!!
