Opening different types of office files at once Tags: Office Windows XP Windows 7 Last response: April 4, 2010 11:11 PM in Windows 7 Share Preacher April 4, 2010 11:31:24 AM I have to open various types of office files at once to mark students work. In XP i would just highlight all the files and press enter but under windows 7 i can only open one type of office file at a time. This is a pain when i have 3 publisher, 2 powerpoint, a spreadsheet and 4 word docs to open. I have searched under folder options but does anybody know of a setting to change to allow it? I cant believe Microsoft could be so stupid as to offer less functionality over xp in this aspect!
