I am just getting used to working with access 2007 from 2002 and noticed the active windows do not display any longer in the task bar.

1a. is there a workaround? (don't think so but just in case)

1b. can a few experts give me a few tips how they work with windows now please. While programming/modifying I like to sometimes compare more than one form/table, etc. but I also like to know what is open and get to the window needed quickly.

This feature is no longer available in A2007, however here is another way

Click on
Office Button > Access options > Current database
   under
    _ Applications Options
       _ Documents window options

        select Tabbed Documents and Display Documents tab

yep, did that so I can arrange windows side by side but the active windows do not display in the taskbar.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

do you use your workaround or do you solely work in the default "tab mode"?
