Is it possible to integrate a popup-type window within a worksheet that will display other available workbooks, then allow the user to open one of those workbooks.

With my current project, I've eliminated all of the Excel typical top file and menu options (Tools, Data, etc) but may want to provide a means of opening a second or third workbook. Currently, if I minimize the workbook I've opened and open another workbook, I have no way of switching between the two.

Thanks for any input!!

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Application.Dialogs(xlDialogOpen).Show
