I don’t know about you, but I find it very annoying when I want to open or save a document in Word 2013 and I have to through the Backstage business. I want it to be quick and easy without a lot of useless clicking around. The default in Word 2013 has you using Save As | Browse.
If you are like me, then luckily I can tell you how to bypass all that nonsense!
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Go to File | Options | Save.
- Select Don’t show the Backstage when opening or saving files.
- Select Save to Computer by default.
- Where it says Default local file locations, key in the file path.
Please note that when you use the key combination shortcut CTRL + O for opening and CTRL + S for saving you will get the same result.
