6. Housekeeping > 52. Control Word Startup

Control Word Startup

This hack lets you start Word with your favorite template or macro. It also shows you how to open Word with a recent or specific document, suppress the Word splash screen, and do away with the wretched default blank document.

Every day, in hundreds of millions of homes and offices around the world, Word starts the same way: a tired click of the Word item on the Start menu, the brief irritation of the well-worn Word splash screen (see Figure 6-2), and then the new blank document based on Normal.dot that almost everyone closes immediately because they need to either create a document based on another template or work with an existing document.

“Will no one rid me of this turbulent splash screen?” Startup switch /q to the rescue!
