You can close it forever, there's a setting somewhere. The very first time I closed it I think it gave me the option of permenantly removing it.

yeah, when I installed office and ran Word, there was an option to "never show on startup"

try and look around in the menus for options

*edit*
found it: tools > options > view (you should already be there) and at the top it should have "startup task pane"
uncheck that
