Excel - cannot restore window to original size by dragging maximised window title

I have Win7 Pro and Office 2007 (+ SP2). In Excel, I can drag a window to the top of the screen so it snaps to maximize, but then I'm unable to drag the title bar of the maximized window to restore the window to its original size. The window remains maximized, attempting to drag the title bar has no effect. Win key + Down arrow works fine, as does clicking the Restore Down button in the top RH corner of the window. I tested the maximize/restore window snap in all my other Office programs and it works fine. Excel is the only program where this issue is occuring.

Any ideas?

Hi Nick

This is a known issue with all versions of Excel with no known workaround. Hopefully this issue will be addressed in a future update.

Hope this helps.
