Excel 2010 on Windows 7 64 bit with extended desktop - Find window stays on primary monitor
Posted on 2013-02-04
Our FC has just had her laptop replaced and she has gone from Office 2007 on Win7 32bit to Office 2010 on Win7 64bit.
When at work she has her laptop connected to a 24" monitor as her secondary monitor on an extended desktop and always has Excel running on the 24".
She has just noticed that the Find window for Excel no longer appears on top of the active workbook, rather it always appears on the primary monitor, which is not the window she wants it on.
I cant seem to stop it from popping up on the primary monitor every time its opened.
I have tried all the usual tricks of moving it to the secondary monitor and closing Excel, in an attempt to save its last position.
I have tried making the 24" monitor primary and opening and closing Excel/find window in
another attempt to save its window position. But as soon as the 24" becomes a secondary monitor again the Find window goes back to the primary.
Any suggestions? Or am I stuck?
