How to Always Start Word 2013 With a Blank Document

When you want to get down to some work, the last thing you need is something holding you back, and when you’re in a rush, even the smallest things can seem like huge obstacles. When you launch Word 2013, you’ve probably noticed that you’re greeted by a list of templates to choose from. If you’d prefer to start with a blank document every time instead, here’s how to do so.

blank_word_1

Launch Word and select Options from the File menu. Make sure that you are on the General tab and then look in the Start up options section.

blank_word_2

Untick the checkbox labelled Show the Start screen when this application starts.

blank_word_3

Click OK, and you’ll no longer be pestered by the Start screen.

If you do need to access a template at some point in the future, you can do so by click the File name and selecting New.
