    stop auto-switching to another desktop


    hi,

    i have desktop 1 and desktop 2
    i have 2 excel files in desktop 1 and 1 excel file in desktop 2
    i open another excel file in desktop 1 so there would now be 2 excel file open in desktop 1
    then when i close 1 excel file in desktop 1
    it will automatically switch to an excel file which is in desktop 2
    i understand it switches to another desktop when there are no more excel files open in the current desktop
    but i still have 1 excel file open in desktop 1
    how can i stop windows from auto switching?
    its really getting annoying

    :)

    Switching off Auto capitalisation

    Auto capitalisatiion can not be switched off on Windows Mobile, it appears. I have a new HCT Touch Pro 2, unchecking auto capitalisation in options does NOT switch it off, there is apparently no way to stop auto capitalisation. Web research confirms this.

    Can anyone please help with a fix, tweak, registry edit etc that will stop auto capitalisation?

    Many thanks,

    Aidan.

    stop auto-switching to another desktop

    i figured it out
    make sure to open first the very first excel file(excel app currently closed) in desktop 1
    so it wont auto switch to desktop 2 after closing the 2nd file in desktop 1

    also found out that every excel file you double click to open will stay in desktop 1
    it previously opens at desktop 2 (doesnt matter where you double clicked the file)

    im guessing this applies to other file types (doc, txt, etc.)
