Customize the welcome screen in word 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I would like to customize the welcome screen/new button in backstage view. On the welcomescreen you have options for "featured" and custom/personal depending on your settings for userTemplates file path etc. I would like to put my own option here, is it possible. I can add a button above theese options but I would like it to look like the "featured/custom/peronal (tabs?)" is it possible?

    As far as I know, we can’t customize this group under the New Tab in backstage view. This is built-in group in backstage view.

    Here are some reference about Customizing Office 2013 backstage: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/vsod/archive/2013/04/05/customizing-office-2013-backstage.aspx

  • Hello Lina,

    Could you please take a screenshot of where exactly you want to place your controls?

    Please take a look at the Customizing the Office 2010 Backstage View for Developers article in MSDN. It provides a comprehensive description of new possibilities introduced by the backstage view.
