immediate, locals and watch windows won't open in vba editor for word or excel in Word 2016 Windows 10

On my newly acquired copy of Office 2016, when I open the VBA editor, I can see the code windows and project and properties windows and write and run code.

However when I select View > Immediate Window, Ctrl-G, View Locals Window, View Watch Windows none of them open the window. I have tried interrupting code then opening a window but that doesn't work. I've tried adding the View Immediate command to a toolbar and that doesn't work and I've checked the Tools > Options > Docking Tab which shows all are selected and tried unselecting the immediate window but that still doesn't work.

Not being able to open these windows is seriously affecting my ability to satisfactorily test VBA code.

This also happens in Excel as well

Hi,

In addition to Doug's suggestion, with the most recent version of Word, I've noticed a tendency of the Immediate window to hide itself at the bottom of the screen. When the View menu indicates it is showing but I can't see it, I move the mouse pointer to the bottom until it becomes a double line. I then drag that line up, and the Immediate Window appears.

Again, you want to do this in a maximized window.
