Starting Word Without Displaying the Word Splash Screen

Tired of seeing the Word splash screen every time that you start Microsoft Word? You can create a shortcut to Word with a command-line switch on the desktop. Here's how: 1. Right-click the desktop, point to "New," and then click "Shortcut." 2. Type "winword /q" (without the quotation marks) and press ENTER. 3. Type "Start Word Without Splash Screen" (again without the quotation marks) and press ENTER. TIP: You can pin a shortcut to the taskbar for quicker access.
