[Excel 2016] File Open command that bypasses the "Backstage"?

[Excel 2016] File Open command that bypasses the "Backstage"?

[Excel 2016] File Open command that bypasses the "Backstage"?

(OP)
[Excel 2016] In customizing the Quick Access Toolbar (choosing from 'All Commands') there is the tool to "Open" files, which is the same as selecting File / Open. Either method uses the "Backstage". The "tooltip" when hovering over this selection while customizing the QAT even indicates "FileOpenUsingBackstage".

Is there some way to force this to go directly to [what used to be] the standard Windows file dialog? I can type "Alt+F", "O", "O" to get there. And I suppose I could put those keystrokes into VBA in my personal macro book. But is there a built-in "tool" to use?

hi,

File > Options...check box Don’t show the Backstage when opening or saving files.

thanks Skip. I found that via Google. Can't say that it really seems to be working, as anticipated at least, and I think some articles found via Google indicated such too. I'll have to take some time later on to figger that one out.
