You don't mention which version of Mathematica you are using, though
the simple answer in all cases is "no."  However one could, in
Mathematica 6, write a utility that allows you to visually navigate
through your notebooks even though some of them are burried.  I have
ideas about this, "but not the time" to create it right now...

One the Mac, of course, there is Expos=E9, which allows you to see all
the notebooks that are currently on your desktop or by application  in
a "thumbnail" view.  I assume that you are using Windows though.

In A WorkLife FrameWork there is the "All Notebooks Palette" which
allows you to bring up any currently open notebook.  See

for an example.  This works in Mathematica 5.x (x>=1) and Mathematica

Hope that this helps...
