Close a Word 2007 Document without Closing Word

Pressing ctrl+W requires TWO clicks (press) too.
Well versed in the benefits of Ctrl+W (and Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-X, Ctrl-Z, etc).
Of course, that is likely due to my misspent youth using Macs (although it is Cmd instead of Ctrl)!

Look again: You need to clear the checkbox for that item. :)

Click on Office Button - Click on Word Options - Click on Customize - Chose commands from "All Commands- Select Close and Add it to the Quick Access Toolbar.
Then to close an open window, just click on the Close icon on the Quick Access Toolbar.

I like being able to just click on that Close icon, on the right end of the Quick Access Tool Bars, when I want to close the open document window.

What version of Word are you using, because the instructions to reach the option are different in mine too. Office Button / Word Options button / Advanced option / scroll down to Display Section. Is the only difference in the way you wrote the instructions or how your app looks.
PS: I prefer to stick with the old standard
But thanks for the tip anyway

I have tried several other ways to close an open Office Word 2007 document. And I prefer having a Close icon on the right end of the Quick Access Tool Bar and using it to close and open document.
Note to check Word 2007 Version
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.
Click Resources, and then click About.
To see information about your computer, click System Info.

Is anyone happy about having to go to the little globe in the upper left corner to get to other documents or the print function for example? Was there a problem with having those useful-- and often used-- functions right out in plain sight on the toolbars?
I've migrated to Open Office. At least their quirks won't cost me an arm and a leg.

That sounds great RAGarrison, but would you mind telling me where the "all commands" are please? I couldn't find it in the " word options"
