Is there a URL to open a new Microsoft Word 365 document?

Currently I have to open Microsoft Word 365


and then click on "New Blank Document"

but I'd like to have a link that creates a new blank document straight away.

  • I am on offline word so I would not know online word functioning. But offline word (2016, 2019) has a Menu - File - Options - General - Start-up option "Show Start screen when this application starts" if you untick this, start screen doesn't appear and a blank document opens directly. Find whether online 365 has some option like that. – VSRawat Feb 5 '19 at 21:40

I think this is the URL that I was looking for https://www.office.com/launch/word?ui=en-US&rs=GB&auth=2

  • It still doesn't do exactly what I want (create a new Word document) but it loads much faster than the generic Office 365 page. – EdenUK Mar 5 '19 at 10:39
  • This is identical to what you wrote in your question??? – user55949 Apr 4 '19 at 11:11
