Making Word Open New Docs in New Window?
      #126960 - 09/17/06 05:02 PM

I have Word 2003 installed on two computers. On the desktop when I open a new document it opens an entirely new window with its own tab down on the task bsr. On the laptop, it opens the new doc inside Word and the only way to get to it is to use the Window drop down menu which is a PITA. I can't find where to make it do what I want. Anyone know where that switch is in Word to force it to open new docs in an entirely new window?

Thanks!


Doug

(Shaking head sadly...)

Doug, Doug, Doug.

If Microsoft thought it was good for you to have both computers work the same way, they would have arranged for the software to function the same way on both computers.

Obviously, it is better for you, somehow, to have the program run differently on your laptop.

The folks at Microsoft know this.

Please, just take your soma and relax like a good boy, and stop trying to have things the way you THINK you want them.

Microsoft knows what's best.

Be well,

Jim,

You may well be correct, but I spit in the eye of the mighty MS...(being the anti-authority figure I am)

[Tools], [Options], [View] tab. Check box next to "Windows in Taskbar".
