Default Word 2013 - Welcome Back Pop-up?

In Word 2013, when I reopen a document that I have been working on, I get this
pop-up window that says "welcome back, etc, etc". I don't really care for it
and am wondering if there is a way to shut the pop-up off?

Thanks for any insights/suggestions.

Unfortunately, Word doesn't offer a simple way to turn off the prompt. In
some versions of Windows, you may be able to prevent access to registry
entries that control this. See

I bet the same people complaining about this didn't like Clippy, either.

I.e., everyone.

I was wondering if you were one and the same person, here and in the
Community. :-)

A programmatic way to dismiss the Welcome Back panel is to put this code in your Normal.dotm file:

Sub AutoOpen()
Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory, Extend:=wdMove
Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdStory, Extend:=wdMove
End Sub

This code moves the cursor to the bottom of the document and then back up to the top.

If youd rather not fiddle with VBA macros, then Ive also put this capability into an Add-In. You can configure the add-in to dismiss the Welcome Back panel, and also to force documents to open in Draft View mode (or any other view of your choice); which restores functionality that MS removed in Word 2013. The add-in can be downloaded from:
