How to disable start screen in Excel 2013?

When we launch a new Excel 2013, you will see collection of templates appeared as following screenshot shown:


At first time, we may be interesting to see those templates, but most of us may choose to click the blank workbook to enter the Excel directly. To save our time, we want a blank workbook to open automatically instead of having to click on the blank template when we launch new Excel. In fact, there is a function for us to disable the start screen in Excel 2013.
