how do you get the window that shows your recent documents and other options (like 'new') to automatically be there when it opens. Mine flashes for a second then my Book1 opens and that's it.

I am using Windows Xp Professional with Excel 2002 I beleive.

Thanks so much!

Are you Amy from Canada?

if yes, it's not necessary to multipost your question. If you're not, never
mind!

AFC (Amy from Canada) got this reply:

This link will give you a macro that you could put into your personal.xl*
workbook (so it runs whenever you open excel):

http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q293820

But Jim Rech has posted this registry tweak (only if you're comfortable with
messing with the windows registry):

Add the Dword item "DoNotDismissFileNewTaskPane" under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\C ommon\General and assign
it the value 1.

While Excel is open, select View task pain

at the bottom of this window, there is a "show at startup" checkbox. check it.

With Excel 2002 open, click on 'Tools'
Then click 'Options'
Among the tabs along the top, click on the 'View' tab
Place a checkmark in the box for 'Startup Task Pane'

This should place the New Workbook box along the right-hand side of the
window. It could also show one of these following windows:
- Clipboard
- Search
- Insert Clip Art

If so, then click on the drop down arrow next to the name of the window and
change it to the one you prefer.
