True to display the Task Pane when starting Microsoft Word. Read/write Boolean.
A variable that represents an Application object.
The ShowStartupDialog property is a global option, and the new setting will take effect only after you restart Word. Use the Visible
property of the CommandBars collection show or hide the Task Pane without restarting Word.
This example turns off the Task Pane, so it won't display upon starting Word. This will not take effect until the next time the user starts Word.
Application.ShowStartupDialog = False
