When using the extended screen program in Win 7 all works well except Excell. When I click on the title bar and hold the mouse button down in Excell the window will not move. Any other program the window will move when doing the above.

I don't have excell so I can't test that myself. What I do know is that in general you can't move a window that is maximized. I just told my pc to show extended desktop and tried to drag my firefox. It automatically took itself out of being maximized when I did that. Basically, in the top right of the screen there's a symbol that is a - used to minimize your window to the taskbar. Next to that is a square or a square over a square. I forget what it is called to change that, it's not maximize or minimize obviously... when your window is half the size of your screen, or anything BUT full, there's a single square there and clicking is will maximize the window so it takes up the whole screen. Once it is full, there's two squares there, one over the other, and clicking it will shrink it down to a smaller, adjustable size. (this is all in the top right corner next to the X to close the window)
Like I said, when I tired to move firefox, it automatically shrank itself down.
If you haven't already, I would click that box and shrink excel to anything but full screen. My guess is that would do it and you should be able to drag it anywhere you want.
I hope it's that simple as that's all I can think of at the moment.
