    When I want to open up several excel files, they all go into the same
    application. Is there any way I can set my computer up so that when I
    click to open a file, it opens in its own window on the bottom bar. I
    want to be able to alt-tab between windows. Currently, I have to go
    to Window/then the file. any thoughts>??

    Thanks.

    another option is using the "ctrl+F6" key which switches between documents,
    it is meant for doing just what you want to do.
