When you use Excel 2007 and 2010, have you noticed that all of your opened Excel files are only displayed as one window in the taskbar? This will be annoying when you tried to switch among the workbooks, and if you want to close only one file, all of the opened files will be closed at once. So how could you show all Excel windows in the taskbar?
In Excel 2007 and 2010, you need to check an option in the Excel Options to solve this task.
1. Click File > Options in Excel 2010 or click Office button > Excel Options in Excel 2007, in the Excel Options dialog box, click Advanced from the left pane, and then scroll down to Display section, and check Show all windows in the taskbar option, see screenshot:
2. Then click OK to close this dialog, and all the opened workbooks have been displayed in the taskbar, you can switch among them quickly, see screenshots:
Note: In Excel 2013, this Show all windows in the taskbar feature has been removed from the Excel Options.

It didn't work out for me, as there is no "Display all windows in the taskbar" option in that menu. I solved it this way though:
Right click on taskbar -> properties -> on the "taskbar buttons" select the "combine when taskbar is full" or "never combine".
Thats it. Works well for me.
