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.

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