    It closes the whole group, but I don't want to! (Word 2002 (XP))

    Has anyone noticed that if you have more than one doc open in Word 2002 and you click the top X in the upper right-hand corner that all of the documents get closed? This is different to Word 2000 and Word 2003. Does anyone know of a way to change this so that only the active document closes and not the whole application? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    This is connected to the "Windows in Task Bar" setting in the View tab of Tools | Options...

    If this option is checked, each document behaves as if it lives in a separate instance of Word. That means that each document gets its own icon in the task bar, and clicking the X in the upper right corner of the Word window will close only the active document.

    If the option is unchecked, Word will behave (more or less) as in Word 97 and before. There will be a single Word icon in the task bar, and clicking the X in the upper right corner of the Word window will exit Word, so all documents will close (after a prompt to save them, if necessary). Clicking the X in the menu bar or document window will only close the document.
