disabling always on top

I use a lot of Bloomberg Excel spreadsheets, some which take five minutes to 
populate and calculate.  About three months ago -- without any change to my 
Excel software -- these spreadsheets began going into "always on top" mode.  
For the ENTIRE time they are populating and calculating, they remain on the 
top of my screen.  This makes it impossible to do ANYTHING else.  I used to 
be able to do other things while the spreadsheets populated and calculated, 
but now I just sit there frustrated, waiting for the damn thing to finish its 
work.  This Excel glitch has completely killed any multitasking efficiency 
for me.

Is Outlook 2010 always on top of other applications?
I am finding an annoyance in using Outlook 2010 beta in that it is always on top of other applications. If I, for example, open a specific message in Outlook it will pop up behind Outlook, causing me to to minimize Outlook and find the message. Is this a "feature" which I can turn off or a bug? It’s a bug and is limited to just you. :) Are you using any add-ins? Because LinkedIn is known to cause this and as do other add-ins when used over VPN (again, older versions of outlook), I'd look at addins. Try starting outlook in safe mode to see if it works ok. -...

Disable Editing tool bars
I posted the other day and got some direction. Thank you Peter Ellis. Now I need some help with what I found. I found a set of macros that should disable on opening, and enable on closing.

no top 10 vendor report
Hello: Does anyone know why GP does not provide a "top 10 vendors" report? Specifically, there is no way to get a report even in SmartList Builder that shows the top 10 vendors that were paid year to date for a previous year. Notice what I just said--"previous year". Sure, in regular SmartList, it is very easy to develop a top 10 vendors report for the current year. But, because of the way that the PM00201 and PM00202 tables are structured (trust me), you cannot get this information for a prior year. Maybe if you did some sort of deep, dark, and drity T-SQL prog...

Troubleshoot: jpg photos print 2 and 4 on top of each other on MS.
I pasted jpg photos to a publisher document. When printing, some photos print the same photo with 2 in the object box, one on top of the other. Other photos print 4 on top of each other in the box where there should be just one photo. The screen view on my monitor looks fine prior to printing. It didn't help to reload the printer driver. The physical printer is a color capable Tektronix Phaser 860DP by Xerox. The photos and document print correctly on a different printer, a non color Konica 7025.

Always Use HTML in Replies
So I went out searching today for a resolution to having to always manually set a reply email to HTML when it comes in from someone in plain text. The only thing I could find is people (including "MVP's" etc) bashing people that wanted to do this calling them impolite, rude and arrogant for disregarding (one even said dis-honoring, sheesh!) the senders preferences for reading email. I have some problems with this: 1) I've been in the IT industry for well over a decade, most of the people I find that use plain text have NO IDEA they are using plain text and/...

Disable Spell Check on the fly for exams
It's exams time of year and as such I need to be able to present a Word 2007 environment without a spell checker. In Office 2003 we simply renamed the mssp3en.lex on logon and named it back on logoff. Thus we could use any workstation on campus and not have to worry about pre-configuration of the workstation. This in conjuntion with Software restriction policies presented a very secure environment. In Office 2007, I have renamed all .lex files, the PROOF folder and the TRANSLAT folder and I still am presented with Spell check results. I've picked the installation apart as...
