Getting Started Task Pane

When you first open Word the Getting Started page will appear automatically in the task pane.
This task pane was removed in Word 2007.
If you find this annoying you can stop it from being displayed (Tools > Options)(View tab, "Startup Task Pane").
This task pane can be displayed at any time by clicking on the Home icon in the top left corner of the task panes.
