Can I turn off the flash picture when starting Excel?

Dear users,
does anyone know a way to turn off the “welcome” start-up flash picture of this toolbox upon starting Excel? I would like to turn it off but haven’t found the means to do so after exploring all preference options. Please kindly advise.

(btw, I have made my donation – thanks to Daniel!)

Click on “Preferences”, then “Miscellaneous”, then click on “Do not show the splash screen during startup.”

Thanks very much for your donation!


ah! I saw it once and then neglected it during my search! Thank you Daniel!
