Office frames unhidden

Postby madrat27 » 02.07.2014 13:44:34

Hello,

last week by accident I unhid a program from Microsoft office with dexpot. So now every time I open a office file I get 3 more tabs in my taskbar. In my printscreen I opened 2 office files: 1 word and 1 excel file. But if you look at my taskbar I have 8 window frames in total. Does anybody now how to hide these extra window frames? Can I do it with dexpot? Or do I change it with taskmanager or something like that?

Thank you!

Do you have any Desktop Rules set up in Dexpot?

Thank you for your answer.

Yes, I do have desktop rules set up. I have a rule that says to move word to the "office" desktop and then follow to that desktop. I've done some experimenting and this is what I found. When I open word while in this desktop, word opens normally in 1 frame. But when I open it in another desktop it jumps to the office desktop and opens 3 or more frames. It is not only Microsoft office that does this. For instance I also use Solidworks (a CAD program) and there it also opens extra frames. It is dependent on if I want to follow to that desktop. If I untick the "follow after move" even more frames pop up. Do you need some more information?

Thank you!

Please enable the "Do not apply rule to invisible windows" option for your rules.
