Windows 2000 taskbar showing all open forms in Access

Posted on 2003-02-20

Is there a way to change the taskbar in Windows 2000 to react more like Windows 98 when opening programs?  For example, For an Access database, I don't want to see every open form on the taskbar, I only want to see one button for each database that's open.  Same thing for Excel, I only want to see one button for each instance of Excel, not for every open workbook.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thats odd this doesn't happen for me. It may be a setting in Excel and Access that causing this behaviour. Hmmm
