Excel files open very small window

Postby chicagotech » Fri Sep 29, 2017 2:44 pm

Situation: The user has been using Office 2013 for years. After a windows update and pre-installing Office 365replaces the Office 2013. He un-installed Office 365 2016.Now, the Excel files open very small window. After he maximizes it, they will open and close just fine for the rest of the day. But the next time it opens small window again.

Resolution: 1. I have not had to use this, but have heard this will resolve what you are experiencing.
1.Open Excel
2.Go to the View tab and click on New Window
3.Save the workbook

Not sure why it works, other than it most likely resets the window view settings.

2. Reset the following registry keys to get it to reset..

Replace 16.0 with whatever version of Office you are running e.g. 14.0, 15.0, etc.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Excel\Options Pos
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Excel\Options Maximized
