Windows 7: Alt+Tab Switcher Showing More Than 1 Option for the Same Application!!

If you have multiple docs opened in Word will it do the same thing? Try it.
1. Office 2010
2. It does not seem to do it with Word - BUT - i just tried quickly, and this "Compatibility Mode" - (which I still haven't read into so still don't understand) - may have to do with the issue. It doesn't ALWAYS happen.

Yes; Cmd+Tab should be Win+Tab.

That would be great!

A quick run through the preferences within Excel I didn't find it, but I only had a quick minute to poke around.

Thank you for that suggestion!

Does Word run in compatability mode as well?

I don't think Office 2010 apps should be using compatability mode.

Find the Excel entry in the Windows Start Menu, right click on it and click properties. You should find a Compatability tab in the Properties window. You'll see what Compatability mode is meant for.

I was having the same problem and solved it on Office 2007 by using unchecking the "Show all windows in the Taskbar" option under the Office Button > Excel Options > Advanced.
