Displaying every open window on taskbar - can I stop this?

Hi! I am a new Windows 2000 user, and I found something VERY annoying that I would like to fix, if possible.

Instead of just displaying the open program on the taskbar,like 95 does, every open window now displays on the taskbar.

Example:  I have an Access database open.  My taskbar displays 3 access buttons (one each for the table, the form and the report).  I cannot continuously be closing and opening these, so it adds a lot of junk to my taskbar and I am having a hard time differentiating between them all.  In Windows 95 there was only one button (for Access in general).

Is there a way to to turn this off and only have one button per program?  Thank you so much.

IF you click on File, Exit to exit the database all of these table buttons should close with the program; i.e. you don't have to close each table separately.

The reason these table buttons appear, is to make it easier for you to access the tables.

This is a feature of Office 2000, not Windows 2000. I just wanted to point out that this is not an Operating System feature...

You can change this option of Access 2000 by going to tools>options>View tab and unchecking the Windows  in taskbar option. This will keep all open tables, macros, views, etc. in one bubble on the taksbar.

I hope this does it for you!

Perfect!  That was the quick, easy answer I was looking for! (I just KNEW there had to be a way!)

And thanks for clarifying that it is an Office feature instead of a Windows feature...I'm trying to get used to both at the same time, and not sure what feature belongs where!  Thank you so much.
