Microsoft Project - Open all tasks in a plan!

I'm trying to figure out how to use one command to open all the tasks in a plan -- one way is to click on each "+" . . . is there a command?

Thanks, Eric

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


If you mean expand all subtasks in the tree view then <ALT> <SHIFT> and the asterisk.

Top ten keyboard shortcuts:

If you mean open the tasks so that you see the task details dialog, then this isn't possible without writing a macro.

Hope this helps...
