Manage document windows

When you have more than one document open, you have several to switch from one to another.

To switch document windows from the Window menu

  • On the Window menu, click the document you want to view.

Each time that you open a new document, the name of the file appears on a document tab at the top of the application window. These tabs appear in the order in which you opened the documents.

To switch document windows using document tabs

  • To switch document windows, you can use one of the following procedures:

    • Click a document tab.

    • Press CTRL+TAB to move to the next document, or press CTRL+SHIFT+TAB to move to the previous document.


Microsoft Expression Design adds an asterisk next to the file name whenever you have made changes to a document that are not yet saved. When you save the file, the asterisk disappears.
