No new file when you launch Excel

When you open Excel you will, by default see a new blank workbook. If you'd prefer to see nothing at all you can do so by altering the Excel startup icon.

Right click it and choose Properties and then in the Command area add the text /e at the end after the double quotes. Now Excel will launch without the splash screen and with no new workbook.
