How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Maintain the position of the search/"Find and Replace" dialog box (and others), except as necessary to expose the found object’s cell

The search/"Find and Replace" dialog box currently moves to a new position each time it is opened. It appears to be moving slightly down and to the right, such as a cascaded window. This causes the user to have to look to a new location each time Find or Replace is used. The most awkward, time consuming, and frustrating problem with this movement is: when the dialog box reaches the bottom of the screen, it stays there; and in that position the results table of Find All is hidden. In order to see these results, the user must drag the dialog box up – each time. The user should be able to set the location of the dialog box by dragging it. It should not move from this position, except as necessary to expose the found object’s cell. The dialog box should not be positioned such that its results table of Find All would be hidden, unless there is no alternative. There should be options (Radio Buttons) to allow either the dialog box to move, the worksheet to scroll, or both to expose the found object’s cell.
