Is there a way when i have more that 1 document open to have them in tabs in word, not a bunch of word docs cluttering up my taskbar?
edit: BTW - regardless of if you use MDI or SDI, office still only uses one winword process. Even in the SDI interface, it may look like you have multiple instances of Word running because it shows multiple icons on the task bar, but there is only one running winword.exe process.Microsoft Office Word 2007
1. Click the Microsoft Office Button, click Word Options, and then click Advanced.
2. Under Display, click to select (or click to clear) the Show all windows in the Taskbar check box.
3. Click OK
Microsoft Office Word 2003 and earlier versions of Word
1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
2. On the View tab, click to select (or click to clear) the Windows in Taskbar check box, and then click OK.
Why do you not minimize the word document you are using within Word (use the document specific min/max/close buttons instead of the application specific min/max/close buttons) and have another document opened in the instance of Word?
That's how I've done things previously.
You simply minimize your current document, not the application and open the next one up and you're good to go. The previous document resides in the background of the same instance of the application.
