Help! I Can’t Type in Word

startup screen 2

If you open a Word document and then find you can’t type, you may want to disable the startup screen.

1. Open Word. Open a document, create a new one, or whatever. You want to move past the startup screen.

2. Click File, Options.

3. In the General window (which should appear by default), look to the “Start up options” section. Uncheck the box marked Show the Start screen when this application starts.

4. Click OK.

Repeat the process in Excel and PowerPoint. The next time you start each of these programs, you’ll go straight to the edit screen, same as in prior versions of Office.

Go eat some cake!
