Default WindowList

Hi.


Is it possible to have the dialog box WindowList not automatically close after selecting a file. This will allow you to browse the open files more easily.

thanks

That is an interesting question. I'm not sure I have a proper solution but this approach causes the dialog to immediately reload until you click Cancel
Code:
Sub ShowDocsListModal()
  With Dialogs(wdDialogWindowActivate)
    Do While .Show <> 0
    Loop
  End With
End Sub
Is that close enough?

Thanks. It's a little better. The problem is that I am working on 5 files at the same time. Which is a bit cumbersome to browse through. Is there a shortcut to this. I know other software will change the shortcut Control + Alt. But for some reason,in Word it doesn't work.

Have you tried WindowsKey-Tab? I prefer to add the 'Switch Windows' button on my Quick Access Toolbar.

If you want to use that dialog with the macro, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to a macro by going to File > Options > Customize Ribbon > Keyboard Shortcuts, scroll categories to the bottom to find Macros and then select it on the right and add your preferred keyboard shortcut.

thank it's help.
By the way, the shortcut I meant above is Control + Tab.
There is also a good plugin that does this. It's called Office Tab. But unfortunately in the country I live in we have a police of thoughts. And block my credit card so I can't buy this extension.

In Word, the default action of Control-Tab keyboard shortcut inserts a tab when your cursor is inside a table. I wouldn't want to repurpose that for your window switching because then there is no way to add a tab in a table cell other than pasting one in from outside a table.

I'm not familiar with View Window List, but is it any relation of Ctrl + F6 for window switching?

ctrl+f6 is not working for me.
but. yes I'm looking for a more effective way for window switching document's windows.
What is the name of the command that has the shortcut CTRL+F6?
I did not find the shortcut keys in the dialog?

I'm afraid I don't know :-} it's a shortcut that's been in my fingers for years. Reference sites such as Word Ribbon - Shortcut Keys just say "here it is, use it." Also, as a very occasional user, I've forgotten how to check the mappings in Word. Luckily, there are people in this forum who know everything you'll need

Ctrl-F6 is assigned to NextWindow by default.

You can see this if you go to File > Options >Customize Ribbon > Keyboard Shortcuts Customize and then try that keyboard combination. The dialog will tell you if it is already assigned to something.
