    Office 2013 Word settings


    I've just purchased Office 2013 as a stand alone on disk. Is it possible to set Word to open to a blank page by default as in Office 2010, instead of the selection menu of various pre-formatted pages?

    Click on File->Options and un-check "Show the Start Screen when this application starts"

    Do the same for excel & Powerpoint
