I can normally switch between all my open windows by using Alt Tab keys.  So, if I have three Excel files open, it will allow me to switch between them all, together with all the other open windows (Outlook, folders, etc)

My colleaugue has a situation where this changes at times to an ability to only switch between applications and not betwen open windows within an applications.  So, for example, if he has three Excel files open, as well as Outlook and a couple of folders, pressing Alt Tab will enable him to switch only between Excel, Outlook and folders, and not between the three Excel files.

How can he change this to the way I have it set up?
