Excel 2007 Grouping in Taskbar

  Haggis2008 13:25 18 Apr 10

I have just installed Office 2007. Now if I open 2 excel workbooks they group together on the taskbar. It is not the group similar taskbar buttons option in the taskbar properties that is the problem. Let me give you an example if I open Firfox, excel 1, word, notpad. The task bar has them in that order but if I open another excel file it changes to Firfox, word, notpad, excel 1, excel 2. Anyone know how to stop this behaviour.

Not sure but click the Office button (top left), click Excel Options, click Advanced and see if the setting Show all windows in the taskbar has an effect.

Thanks for getting back so quick VoG. I tried you're solution but it didn't help.

As far as I am aware Windows on its own does not allow you to move them around. I guess that Microsoft reckoned that users would want open windows belonging to the same program together hence you get Excel, Excel. There are programs that allow you to alter this. I have never used them but if you do a Google search on windows taskbar order you will find them.
