While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.

Excel 4 Upgrade

Send Article to a Friend

Excel 4 Upgrade -- Mark H. Anbinder writes, "Microsoft Excel customers who are stunned by the zippy release of Excel 4.0 and are interested in upgrading will be pleased to learn that they can upgrade for pseudo-free (there is a $7.50 shipping charge) if they purchased Excel 3.0 after 15-Feb-92. Customers should call 800/426-9400 and should have their registration information handy. (Please call after 25-Aug-92, as Microsoft's entire sales division has been partying hard at an annual sales meeting (we're talking Mr. Bill running around with a squirt gun, to judge from a second-hand eyewitness account) and will be swamped when they return to the normal routine on 24-Aug-92!)."
