Most of us open more than just one file within a particular software. That’s what multi-tasking is all about. You might be referencing information in several documents in order to create a new one. In fact, Office 2010 actually has no limit to the amount of files you can open at once, a multi-tasker’s dream! Only your computer’s memory is what limits the number of files opened at a time.
Here’s the problem. Files normally display one on top of each other. How do you switch quickly between the files within a software like Word 2010? The command you are looking for is called Switch Windows, located under the View tab. When clicked, it drops down a list of documents currently open for you to bring forward. But isn’t it a hassle to have to use your mouse to click on View + Switch Windows + the file you want to view?
Here’s the solution. Use the keyboard shortcut in Office 2010 ALT + W + W. It automatically displays the drop down list of open files. Simply type the number of the file you want to view and that file displays on top. The perfect way to jump around your open files!
