Eliminate the new "Save your changes to this file?" dialog box
In the last week, whenever I close down a new Excel file without saving it, a new dialog box appears asking "Save changes to this file?". Whereas previously I could use keyboard shortcuts to immediately close down a file (Ctrl-F4, N), this no longer works. Instead, the new box interprets the "N" keypress as something to be entered into the "File Name" text field.

Same happens in Word and it is infuriating
Agreed. Why does Microsoft feel the need to continually modify the user interface in ways that hurt productivity! The new dialog is much, much slower leaving me waiting for it to display. And when it pops up it completely ignores the keyboard shortcut entries I've learned over decades of using Office products!

Agreed. In addition, the new dialog takes much longer to load on my machine (2-3 seconds), which disrupts workflow.
