Excel 2016 - Window Jerky When Moved

    Excel 2016 - Window Jerky When Moved

    When I move my Excel 2016 window on the monitor it has a jerky movement -- not smooth at all. Every other application moves smoothly including other Office 16 applications. It doesn't matter if the spreadsheet has no data and is the only application that is open. I also notice that Excel opens more slowly than other apps. All of this began several months ago. I should have noted the exact timing, but did not. It probably occurred as a result of a Windows update since I had not made any hardware or software changes during the time span that the problem began.

    Anybody else experience these symptoms with Excel 2016? Any suggestion on what may have caused it (i.e., a certain Windows update) or how it might be fixed.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    I've noticed some weirdness with moving around Office windows as well.

    Can you open task manager and drag the Excel window around for a bit? I get a very significant jump in CPU usage from Excel and the DWM, more so than other non-Office apps.

    Tried your suggestion. Didn't see a lot of difference. See graph below showing CPU usage comparing Excel to Word. While this CPU usage was being recorded, Excel experienced the jerky movements. When I tried Word, smooth as silk. Desktop Windows Manager and Microsoft Excel compared to Word showed similar % usage for both Apps in the 5% to 10% range.

    Lots of views, but only 1 response. Does that mean that others are experiencing the problem but nobody knows the reason or has a solution? Just wondering.
