In Microsoft Office applications, when a new window (that is not maximised) is opened, it is sized the same as the previous window and is cascaded. "Cascaded" means it is located a little lower and to the right of the previous window unless that would put the bottom right of the window outside the screen, in which case the window is located at the top right of the screen.
Most Office applications (such as Word) account for the taskbar, and will place the new window at the top right of the screen rather than with part of it hidden behind the taskbar. However Excel doesn't do that and will place new windows with the bottom part hidden behind the taskbar. This is annoying as it means I have to reposition the window in order to see Excel's tabs.
I am using Excel 2016 on Windows 10, but I believe this also happens on Windows 7 and with any version of Excel that has a separate window for each workbook. I do not have the taskbar set to auto-hide, and don't want to use that setting.
I reviewed Windows 7 - bottom of applications hidden by taskbar, but the only answer (try a higher screen resolution) does not apply (I am using the highest available resolution). I also reviewed Bottom Part of Software Window Hidden, but the only answer suggests experimenting with text size and mine is set to the standard 100%.
Is there a workaround for this?
