Opening Multiple Project Files as a

If you always open the same set of project files, you can put those files together in a project workspace. Without creating a master project or consolidating the files into a single project file, you can simply associate the projects together. When you open the workspace file, all projects that are a part of that workspace open at once. To save a project workspace, follow these steps:

1 Open all project files you want to be a part of the workspace.

2 Close any project files you do not want to save in the workspace.

3 Click File, Save Workspace.

The Save Workspace As dialog box appears (see Figure 14-13).

Figure 14-13. Use the Save Workspace As dialog box to group project files that should always be opened at the same time.

4 Select the drive and folder in which you want to save the workspace file and then enter the name for the workspace in the File Name box.

5 Click the Save button. Workspace files are saved with the .mpw extension.
