My PC does not return to the source document I print from RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had a setting control for
    this in XP but can't find the page I got it from.<o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>

    In ANY application or browser
    this happens.  I print from a specific Excel workbook, by example, when I
    have a number of them open.  The system does not return to the workbook I
    printed from.  This is maddening and causes all kinds of issues.
     Searching the web for this now produces nothing and I know I can't be the
    only person who experiences this.<o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>

    This is a Windows 7 platform
    in a networked business environment.  I'm running the Classic Menu add-in
    from Addintools because I can't stand the ribbon and have never liked it.
     In Windows 7, I'm running a couple of other add-ins that restore the XP
    use of the task bar properly so one can work efficiently.<o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>

    None of the add-ins are what
    is causing this issue because I'd run the same Classic Menu add-in on the XP
    box and it had the same issue until I found the work-around that I can't
    remember now.<o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>

    Has anyone else experienced
    this issue?<o:p></o:p>

  • Hi,

    "I print from a specific Excel workbook, by example, when I
    have a number of them open.  The system does not return to the workbook I
    printed from."

    If I'm not misunderstanding, do you mean that the workbook is automatically closed after you print from that workbook, right?

    As I know, if we use the default ribbon in Excel, no matter in Windows XP or Windows 7, the opened workbook should be stay opened after you print from that Excel workbook.

    So the question is that: what is the version of office? What is the Classic Menu add-in you're running now? Did you manually download and install it to your system? Could you please share a picture with us about the add-ins you're using?
