Office 2013 tip: Disable backstage when saving files

If you want to go directly to the traditional save or open dialog when accessing files in Office 2013, you can enable the ‘Don’t show the Backstage when opening or saving files’ option. This can be accessed under the ‘save’ section of MS Word’s options.


After enabling this option, the setting will be carried over to other Office applications. Pressing the save or open shortcut (or pressing F12 to access the ‘Save As’ dialog) will now activate the traditional Windows Open/Save dialog box.
