access 2007 display open windows or new way of working

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.

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

        select Tabbed Documents and Display Documents tab
