Microsoft seems to love keeping start screens for its various products. Be it Windows 8, the latest operating system or Office 2013, the latest office productivity suite from them, the start screen becomes very annoying for most of the users after a few days of usage.

From this Office 2013 start screen, you can choose from the available online templates and continue your work. Microsoft thought its very convenient but if you just want to start working right after opening the product, it’s actually very annoying.
