That thumbnail not switch active file

Hi, I try to explain my problem. First of all sorry for my bad english. Usually I have opened a lot of excell files and they are very similar each other. I recognise them by the title on the thumnail on windows taskbar. If I click on a file that is open in backgroud it switch on desktop, but if it is already on desktop it goes to background. This is very unpleasant to me. When I click on a thumbnail I want THAT window. What can I do?

I don't think you can change that behavior, as that is the way it's supposed to work.

If you click on a thumbnail of a window that is currently being displayed it is minimized. It's supposed to act as a toggle like that.

Maybe Brink has some magic registry hack for this but I don't think so.

Yes, I know that it works as it have to, but as you said I am looking for some registry modification that don't allow currently displayed window get minimized when you click on its thumbnail.

Instead of clicking on them, can't you just point to them? That should show a mini window of each one and allow you to see what it is.
