Command-Line Switches for Microsoft Office Word 2007
To modify how Microsoft Office Word 2007 starts on a one-time basis, one can add switches to the Microsoft Windows Run command (Start menu). If one plans to use a modified startup method frequently, one can create a shortcut on the Windows desktop. Each time one starts Word, one is actually running the Winword.exe command, although the user does not usually type the command or even see it. The user can change certain aspects of how the program starts by adding subcommands called switches to the Winword.exe command. A switch appears after the main command, following a space and a forward slash (/).
