    When you say that it opens a different size – can you give more info? Do you mean the application window is a different size (it shouldn’t be) or that the font sizes (zoom) are different? (again, they shouldn’t be)

    Additionally, if you can post a video of what you’re seeing, that would be a big help for us.

    If there is a problem here, it’s definitely something we’d want to fix.

    Cheers,
    Dan [MS]

    I can clarify because I feel the pain of the original post. Excel (w/ 2016 I think) now allows different workbooks in separate windows (yea ... thank you). But now if I open 2 workbooks and I move 1 to the left and make it small and I move the other to the right and make it large then I close both workbooks. When I reopen either workbook (or any other workbook for that matter) Excel will open the the workbook to the location and size of the last workbook when Excel exited.

    Excel should remember the window size (AND location) of each closed workbook and the next time that specific workbook is opened it should open with the same size and in the same location as the last time it was closed. Not based on the size and location of the last closed workbook in Excel.

    Many of us work with multiple workbooks open at the same time and we position them and size them independently so we can better work on them simultaneously. Unfortunately when we close Excel and then open them the next day they all open cascaded in the position of the last closed workbook and with the window size of the last closed workbook.

    Thanks for the post Charles, and for the in person conversation at the latest MVP conference. We definitely understand the ask and will keep our eye on it – it looks like it’s moving up the vote charts pretty quickly. As always, keep upvoting the things you are about most.

    Best,

    Great suggestion, thanks David! And thanks to other people who took the time to clarify/comment on this one. There’s definitely room to tighten this experience up in a number of places. We’re getting a lot of traffic on the site, so please keep voting for the things you care about most to help us do a great job of prioritizing.

    Thanks to Graham for starting this conversation. If you would also like Excel to maintain named range references and structured table references in the “applies to” field for Conditional Formatting rules, please add your comments and vote this one up. We will prioritize accordingly.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think I’ve seen some related requests, I’ll look at merging them to make sure the votes properly reflect the ask. We’ll prioritize this into the execution pipe appropriately based on the number of votes.

    Great suggestion – thanks again for taking the time to put it on this site and for the thoughtful followup comments. This is pretty related to some other work we’ve got going and already has a fair number of votes, so we’ll work on getting plans in place now and hope to get started on this soon.

    Thanks,
