Click on the Excel Options button to modify the setting. I tried the View-Arrange All-Tiled but that didn't work for me. Almost all solutions were tested without success. I guess I'll have to live with it. Many times, I have opened 40 or 50 workbooks at a time.
Retired now, But having owned a construction business I did a lot of work in Office programs for many a year so I know what you all go through. None of these make any difference. I understand the Aero preview little pop-up windows when you hover. The spreadsheet in question has quite a bit of color formatting but not much in the way of formulas and no macros. Scroll down on the list of options until you the Display section. However, for now to keep you working without the distraction, could you open a separate instance of Excel and work with it that way? Open Excel and click on the Office Orb located on the top-left corner of the screen. I never had any problem before today.
Problems started when we moved over to windows 10. All other workbooks are maximized in their instance of excel and properly display the filename in the windows taskbar. I did have a look at how to open 2 excel sheet in separate instances, but that link was for windows 8. I have checked the taskbar's property. I have for example, five Excel workbooks open, four will appear in the taskbar when I hover over the Excel icon and one will not. Open two instances of excel.
For some reason the icon has changed to be a blue color and whenever I try to open the file it opens a notepad file. How do I change the taskbar settings to manage my open files like that? I tried recreating this based on your description and I do not have this issue. I didn't have Merged cells, but I did have wrapped text. Does anyone else have any new suggestions? Hopefully, one of them will work if nothing else has. The default setting for this feature groups all Excel windows or workbooks into one Taskbar button. There are a number of reports specific to Excel, for quite a while.
When Gilbert is away from his bike and his iPad, he's busy writing technology how-to's from his home-office in Miami, Florida on the latest programs and gadgets he can get his hands on. I have also tried opening the files from the open button, from the recently used files list and from the folder they are stored in but this makes no difference. Normally when you hover over an icon in the taskbar it will pop up with the tooltip if its not open and the window list when its open im on basic theme. Then I noticed that my entire taskbar was gone. In Excel 2007 and 2010, you need to check an option in the Excel Options to solve this task.
Quite a shock to not see any text. The more Excel files I opened, the more Excel files tabs listed in the taskbar. Carl worked for nine years as an information security auditor and consultant for CoNetrix and now serves as the Chief Operations Officer. I have not noticed the same issue with other programs but must admit I rarely would have multiple files open from other programs. The taskbar is set to auto-hide and is not visible 2.
I'm looking into resolving this. However Excel doesn't do that and will place new windows with the bottom part hidden behind the taskbar. If I do that and subsequently open addtional Excel workbooks and then close them, the problem appears, and the workbooks opened through the workspace no longer appear on the taskbar unless one of them is the active window. The user frequently opens multiple workbooks and switches between them using the Windows taskbar, however the list of open files is now disappearing from the taskbar when she opens a new one. After I turn on my laptop, Windows loads up fine and everything appears to be working, the desktop loads just fine and all applications start up. I have no idea what to do about this - my machine is fully patched and up to date.
I have several workbooks that I open with an Excel workspace. Don't know why you're having the issue and I don't have Office installed on my 10, but have in 8. Or best fix: Install Windows 7! To test, start closing workbooks one by one. I just read that people had to uncheck this, apply it, and recheck this to make it work again. You can also exit Full Screen mode by clicking the Minimize or,Restore Down buttons in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. This doesn't happen all the time and I can't predict when it will or will not happen. I have for example, five Excel workbooks open, four will appear in the taskbar when I hover over the Excel icon and one will not.
