In Word 2007, when I click the expand button on the Styles area of the ribbon, nothing happens. I have tried reinstalling Word but am still having this issue.

The only reason I can see for "nothing to happen" is that you opened it, and it is now off-screen. Since it memorizes its position, it will open it back to the last place where you put it.

Did you use it in a multi-screen situation recently?

I can't find, unfortunately, an option to reset the position of these windows, for now.

Thanks for the message. I am actually RDC'ing into a box that has no monitor. I will try and get on the actual PC to see if that helps. – joe Jul 6 '10 at 18:56
Let me know if you find out any information on how to reposition the windows. – joe Jul 6 '10 at 18:57
