Quickly hide other workbooks (all inactive windows) in Excel

Normally you can hide or unhide workbooks one by one in Excel, but there is no way for you to hide or unhide multiple workbooks at one time. For example, you open multiple workbooks in Excel, and you want to handle them one after one, so you may want to hide the inactive workbooks to stay working on one workbook. You cannot hide all inactive workbooks with one click in Excel, but with this Hide Inactive Windows tool of Kutools for Excel, you can quickly solve this problem.

Click Kutools >> Show / Hide >> Hide Inactive Windows, See screenshot:
