    Want "New" to open a blank document, not template list

    In Office 2007 the Office button > New opens a list of templates.
    I only want a blank document.
    How can I set the New button to simply open a blank Word document?

    You can customize the Quick Access Toolbar to add the command "New Blank Document", but the easyist way would be to use the Ctrl-N keyboard shortcut. (If that has been re-assigned to something else, you can create your own alternative via the Customize Keyboard dialog (File > Options >Customize Ribbon, Keyboard shortcuts Customize button). The FileNewDefault command is what you need.
