How to close a single document in Word 2010?

Question

When I use Excel 2010 I always get two "crosses" in the top right of the screen. One to close the current document, and one to close the entire program. This comes in handy when I have multiple documents open. But this isnt the case when I have multiple documents open in Word 2010. Then there is only one cross in the top right to close the entire program. When I want to close a document when I have more documents open, I have to go to "File" and close the document I want to close.

Is there a way, or a setting, with wich I can add or select the "close this document cross" to Word 2010?

Hi Beyond_Life-When you have multiple documents open in 2010, you can simply click on the X to close the desired document. All others should remain open (mine behaves this way).

However, to address your question, you can use the keyboard shortcut CTRL + W to close just the document without closing Word.Hope this helps!

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.
