    Hello, yfourie7443. Welcome to Windows Ten forums.

    Thanks for that, Paul! This may finally solve this.

    So one must set the Taskbar buttons to "Never combine" in Taskbar properties.

    Right click Taskbar > Choose properties on the context menu > Choose "Never combine" > Click "Apply" > Close Properties. You may want to choose "Use small taskbar buttons" as well if things get crowded.

    Thank you for your advise, unfortunately that doesn't solve the problem, as it doesn't always happens when I have more then 1 book open. I am not sure what triggers it, one moment I am working fine, next moment workbook is gone. Well at least it looks like it is gone, but if I make the one book small, inside the excel frame the other sheet is still there, jut behind the other book. I hope this explanation makes sense..
    Thank you for your time and help!

    You're welcome, yfourie7443. We're glad to be of help.

    I know what you mean. You get a 3D cascading thumbnail arrangement such as below. Yours are not stacked as I've shown previously. I'll have to do more research and ask friends on this. In the mean time, please post your Office edition(s) and 10 edition(s) (Pro, Home, etc.).

    As well as the above info about versions

    Is it possible to list in steps what you do to get the issue

    eg (mine is based on 2016 version)

    1. Open Excel
    2. Select workbook from right hand side to open it
    3. Select File->New to open another workbook
    4. Select workbook in right hand side to open it
    repeat until 5 are open

    Hello guys and welcome to TenForums.

    Although I've never had occasion to have more than a couple of workbooks open at once, I have a resource I can plug into and hopefully get an answer for y'all.

    I'll copy and past the OP's message to a a Microsoft private forum on Yammer; there are a couple of Excel authors there and one of them should be able to help.

    I have got windows 10 pro, office 2010.
    I go to the folder with my workbooks and open 1 by double clicking on it. I am making orders and checking invoices, so as I go along I open more and more workbooks. Weird thing is it doesn't happen all the time..even if I open the same workbooks..

    Thanks for posting that information, yfourie7443. I see your problem is intermittent. Was it that way upon first use or did you start having the problem after some use? Perhaps these Offices didn't install correctly.

    Just to be sure, in Excel advanced options you have chosen 'Show all windows in taskbar'?

    There is an Office repair. Your repair should be similar or within one of the programs somewhere. Press Windows key and X combo > That brings up the Power user context menu in the lower left of the desktop > Choose 'Programs and Features' > Right click Office > Choose 'change' > Office repair window appears. I suggest to perform a full repair.

    This is the Office 2016 repair window.

    So far, no reply from my private group. They may not be any smarter than I am.
