    So that's a good fix, can you now also move and/or resize the MS Word window like a norma Mac OS application should be able to do?

    In the words of the famous John McEnroe, "You cannot be serious!".

    In my words, Nope, it's a one-size fits all bodge up!

    You now have a window of the size that they have dictated and it is 'cheekily' positioned to the left of centre and nearer the bottom of the screen than the top. Certainly a lot better and much more usuable.

    Edit: In fairness to Microsoft it should be stressed that this is an an Insider Update and the finished product may be more polished.

    It sounds to me, going by your description of the position, it's matching their political slant!!!

    PS: Didn't you say that their pre-updated version was working okay??? Why not reinstall It and get your proper window position back???
    Insider Update version or not.

    Thanks for reporting that. I was having the same problem but used a work around to circumnavigate the error. I don't subscribe to insider updates so will wait for the published fix from MS.

    I can live with size and position of the latest update (Insider) and will leave it as it is.

    I've turned off Insider Updates again, which I only turned on this time to access the new 'updated' version earlier.
