Application.ShowWindowsInTaskbar Property (Excel)

Office 2010

expression .ShowWindowsInTaskbar

expression A variable that represents an Application object.

When set to True, this property simulates the look of a single-document interface (SDI), which makes it easier to navigate among open workbooks.

This example specifies that each open workbook won’t have a separate Windows taskbar button.
