I often have problems with pop-up windows in Excel (like Save as, or filters) appear behind the main Excel window. I can only see the pop-up window briefly when selecting the Excel application from the task bar, but then it disappears behind the main window again in a fraction of a second. When the window is there, I cannot resize the main window, I can only hit Enter or Cancel to get back to the main window. The only way to see and be able to enter text or data into the pop-up window is to resize the main window to make it very small before starting the action that brings up the pop-up window.
