Personal.xlsb code modules all opening every time I open the VBA Editor

Hi Experts

I have just upgraded from XP to Windows 8.1 and now in Excel 2007, every time I open the VBA Editor, all the code modules from my personal.xlsb are open.
This behaviour never happened in XP so I am guessing it is possible to "switch off".

I have my personal.xlsb in the XLStart folder as I did in XP.

I do want it available, but not all the code windows opening.

Thanks in advance

Nick

1. Open personal.xlsb
2. View tab >> Hide >> Select personal.xlsb
3. Exit Excel, save if prompted

Thanks for response.
Personal.xlsb is already hidden.
My challenge is when I open the VBE (Alt+F11) the code windows are all open.
I would prefer them all to be closed.

Have you tried closing them one by one? Then, open again the VBE?

Sincerely,

Thanks Ed, yes I tried that and they still all remain open.

However, unless there is some way of doing this natively, I am using the "hide windows when collapsing the project" option in the tools menu.

This will do I suppose as its only a click of the mouse.

Thanks again.

I will leave a while in case there is an option somewhere.

Might seem a daft question but after closing the windows in the VBE, are you saving the file?

Thanks

I am clicking the "save" icon  in the VBE and it is still displaying the same when I reopen Excel.
When I first posted, the tiles were randomly all over the VBE, now for some reason at least they are neatly stacked????

It seems I am having a few issues with Excel, so this may be a reinstall job.

Clicking Save in the VBE is flaky at best. Once you have collapsed the project, use:
Workbooks("Personal.xlsb").Save

Open in new window

in the Immediate window.

Thanks Rory. I tried your suggestion but all windows are still open when restarting Excel.
However, as said, a simple click to collapse gets rid when they are not wanted.

Is it actually possible to start the VBE with the all projects collapsed?

I have tried starting Excel with a blank workbook, no workbook (the  /e option), and direct through file association.

All results are the same for me.

Thanks

Strange - that method works for me.

Thanks for all input.
Things seem to have settled down so long as I collapse the Personal project.
