How to disable the splash screen on Office 2010
  

We all saw the splash screen that appears every time we launch a Microsoft Office program. Whether Word, Excel, PowerPoint or other Office program, a screen appears on the screen before you actually start the program. It looks pretty on the first run but the same screen begins frustrating when you start Office programs over and over again.


The startup screen in the latest version of the Office suite, Microsoft Office 2010, is useful in some aspects. It shows all the loading Add-ones and other things and also lets you close the program in the mid-way, without having to wait for the launch window. But if you are running Office programs several times a day, then watching the same boot screen again and again for 3-5 seconds could frustrate you. Users who wish to get rid of the splash screen and to accelerate the start of office may follow one of the methods listed below.

Microsoft Office Word 2010

Method 1: The best way to run an Office program, without the splash screen. In this method, we use a switch to start an Office program, without the splash screen.
Open the Start menu. In the search box, type winword / q to start Office Word without splash screen.


Method 2: Users who want to create a shortcut on the desktop Office programs can follow the steps below.
  • Right-click on the desktop, selects New, then select Create Shortcut to start the wizard shortcut.

  • In the wizard, type in the location of the item, enter the full path to the Office program you want to launch without the splash screen. At the end of the path, add the switch (see list below).
  • To create an Office Word 2010 shortcut on the desktop and the file path is WINWORD.EXE "C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office14 \ WINWORD.EXE", then the full path after typing switch will:
    "C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office14 \ WINWORD.EXE" / q

  • Click next, type a name for the shortcut

  • Click the Finish button to see the shortcut on the desktop. Double-click the desktop shortcut to run the Microsoft Office without the startup screen.
