    win 8 calculator, only one instance open (default)

    Hi All
    I have a win 8 pro setup.
    Every time I press the calculator shortcut on the keyboard a new calculator window opens. I would like to have only one instance.
    It is very annoying when it opens a new calculator window every time. Have spent a lot of time searching and no solution found yet.
    Would someone be able to give me a hand?

    That is odd. I just played with mine and I only get one calculator no matter how many times I try.

    Yes, very odd. Have seen some sites where people wanted more than one window(instance) opening. I find it very much a pain.
    Here a site which shows a workaround(hotkey) though this hasn't worked for me.
