    Office 2007 not displaying filenames

    Hi,

    I am running office 2007 on vista. Previously, when I had open files, I could see the filename minimised. However, I can no longer see the name, but just an icon to represent each file. How can I revert to the old setting ?

    I think the reliable solution would be to add the document location command to your Quick Access Toolbar:

    • Click the More (or Customize) command at the end of the QAT and then click More Commands.
    • In Choose Commands From, select Commands Not In the Ribbon.
    • Locate Document Location, select it, and then click Add to add it to your QAT.

    Tools -> Options -> View -> Windows in Taskbar

    If you have Windows in Taskbar disabled, when you minimize the workbook what you are seeing in the taskbar is just the title bar for the Excel application, which has no file name to show because the file is minimized. If you hover over the minimized file bar you should see just the filename ballon tip.

    If you have Windows in Taskbar enabled, you will see the filename on the taskbar but not the "Microsoft Excel".

    Try it with Windows in Taskbar enabled or disabled and maximize or minimize a file window. You will see the different states which are default behaviour.

    Is that in Excel ? I don't see a tools menu in excel 2007, or in vista.
