Quite often I will have 3 or more documents; e.g. Word, open on my desktop, but miminized to the system tray. If I open another existing Word document "all" of the open and minimized documents are fully restored to the desktop and then the newly opened document is displayed so it is in front. This will occur with any Office program used if you have several documents open at one time. My research indicates this is the default behavior in Office and has been for several releases. I'm using Office 2007. Does anyone know if there is a way to make a change within the Office programs to keep this from happening? Is it possible a Registry Key change can help with this? Thanks for any help you can provide.
