Missing Find and Replace Dialog Box in Excel

April 19, 2017 at 06:56:48
Specs: Windows 7
Use Ctrl+F to select the Find and Replace Dialog Box in Excel and release the keys without clicking or selecting anything else. Next, then hold down the following keys (in order) alt+spacebar+m (to move the dialog box) and while holding these keys down then use the arrow keys to move the box.

This will work with any windows PC item you might be missing. Just do a google search for the the shortcut key for the item you are trying to move and replace the Ctrl+F with the shortcut key of the item you are trying to get back.

I'm not sure what you are trying to explain.

The title of your post includes the word "missing".

The body of your post says "This will work with any windows PC item you might be missing. Just do a google search for the the shortcut key for the item you are trying to move"

You seem to go back and forth between "moving" and "missing" when discussing the dialog box.

What problem are you offering a solution for - recovering a missing dialog box or moving a dialog box?

In addition, re: your instructions: "then hold down the following keys (in order) alt+spacebar+m (to move the dialog box) and while holding these keys down then use the arrow keys to move the box."

If I hold alt+spacebar+m down, the arrows key do not move the dialog box. The alt+spacebar+m keys displays the 4 sided move arrows, but I have to release those keys in order for the arrow keys to move the dialog box.

Please explain that discrepancy.
