Windows in Taskbar

Reader rating: 3 out of 10


Do you work on many Word documents at once? Each document you open adds a new button to the Taskbar (the bar at the bottom of the screen which includes the Start button).

But what if the buttons take up too much space?

This How-To Article shows you how to have only one button be displayed for all of your Word documents.

Windows in Taskbar

1. Click the Tools menu and select "Options...".

2. Click the "View" tab.

3. Uncheck the "Windows in Taskbar" check box.

4. Click OK.

5. Now, each document will open inside the main Word window and will function like older Word 95 versions. Minimize, maximize, and close buttons will be displayed near the toolbar which allow you to work with the open windows.

Tip: Once you set this option, you can see other windows which are open by clicking the minimize (-) button near the toolbar.
