1. Open your Visual Effects settings.

2. Check (on - default) or uncheck (off) Show window contents while dragging for what you want, and click/tap on OK.

OPTION TWO
Turn On or Off "Show window contents while dragging" using a REG file

Note Note
The downloadable .reg files below will modify the string value in the registry key below.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

DragFullWindows string value

0 = Show window outline while dragging
1 = Show window contents while dragging

NOTE: This is the default setting
Save the .reg file to your desktop.
Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.
If prompted, click on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.
Sign out and sign in or restart the computer to apply.
You can now delete the downloaded .reg file if you like.

I have the same issue. If it helps, NOT maximizing tends to keep it from moving around while switching tabs.

Hi @all,

unfortunately, I have the same or a similar problem, I think. I work with 2 monitors, Windows 10 64bit and Office 2013 32bit. Excel remembers the last window position in which the FIRST worksheet was opened. If I move the window and open a new worksheet, the window will either sprint back or it will open a new window (I use the single-window-mode, without seeing all documents in the task bar) at exactly this start position. By clicking on the tabs, the windows are reassembled into a window. But that does not always work. If I openend a few windows in different windows positions, I can't switch between the tabs anymore. Working with Excel is really torture wirth this bug :-(

I will show you one of the problems in an attached shreenshot. I've got an video too, but the size is 2,3 MB an I cannot upload this.

best regards

Update if it helps. The 365 I pay for personally looks a tad different than the one I use at work and I don't know if there's a difference between a business VL and regular pay per month/year, but it's the same issue all around for me (work desktop, home laptop, and home desktop).

Some times, unmaximizing the Excel and switching tabs works. Can't switch tabs while maximized after a while or when opening new windows.

Am I just this unlucky?

No, all other add-ins were removed in an attempt to find a resolution before the original post.
