Default Closing docs in Word 2007


After using Word 2003 for years and being accustomed to closing docs using the "x" in the upper rt corner of the doc window, I'm at a loss how to close a Word 2007 doc without having to use the two-step process of clicking on the Office Button, then Close. Unless I'm missing something, I don't see the usual "x" in W 2007. If no "x", is there a key stroke to close docs?

I am having a similar problem. The "X" is there but the mouse does not work. After that the mouse does not work in Word at all except for a right click on the window bar and select close. The is a fix for Vista but not for XP.

Click on the 'Office Button' (the big round logo, top-left) to bring up the Office menu and choose 'Close'.

Thanks for the suggestion but that does not work either, because the mouse does work anywhere in a Word docuemnt other than on the title bar. Up until I click on the "X" to close verything works fine. Once I clikc on the "X" nothing happens and the mouse no longer works. It oiny occurs in Word. Once I close Word and reopen it works again until I try to close it again.

I used to be able to close documents using the "X", but something has happened on my system and it no longer works. I was hoping that someone else had experienced the same problem and may have found a solution.

Jim.
