Closing a document without closing Power Point

I used to be able to close a PP presentation without closing the program. I
can't seem to find out how to do that with Office 2007. Help?

With the presentation you want to close as the active window, click the
Office button and then click Close at the bottom of the list. Another way
is to right click the file in the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and
click close.

Here you go ... a couple of different solutions to this one:

Ctrl+F4 closes the active
document/presentation/workbook/publication/webpage/file/etc. in just about
any Windows application that supports opening multiple files.

All of the other answers are correct, but they're not the best answer. :-)

Seriously, I customized my Quick Access Toolbar (right-click on it and
choose Customize) and added the "Close" button. I had to train myself to
close my files from the QAT, but I do find it's much faster than going to
Office Button | Close. I think it's also way better than removing the "show
all windows" option we list in the PPT FAQ, because I miss having my files
easily accessible along the bottom of my screen.

In addition to the "Close" button, there's also a "Close Window" button.
They seem to work the same way, for all intents and purposes.

When you're in the Customize dialog, choose "All Commands" in the "Choose
Commands From" dropdown list. The two close options are there.

Hi Irene

Just to add my 2ps worth: ctrl+W works in all the '07 programmes.

And easier to remember.

OK, all three additions are going up on the FAQ in the next update.

Might take a while. The thing's in pieces and spread out all over the
office floor. Sign on the wall reads "God Bless This CSS Mess"
