Too many windows force the user scroll well before the comfortable screen space for the window is exhausted. We also do not want these windows to simply be bigger and potentially take up an unnecessary amount of screen space.
For the best of both worlds, I suggest that a window should be resizable if and only if it contains variable-sized content (e.g. scroll bars, text boxes).
Examples of specific windows are listed in the comments.165 votes
This is a great suggestion, but we’re marking it “Not at this time”, because there are many dialogs in Excel and we don’t have a plan to address all of them at one time. If there are specific dialogs you want improved, please vote for specific suggestions about those, or leave comments here. We’ll keep tracking the votes on this one.
There is some good news. We’re working on making the Conditional Formatting dialogs resizable in Excel for Windows.
Here’s more about that –
