Office Application Share File Window Re-Sizes Smaller for each address added - and won't re-size larger

When using any Office application, if you request to 'Share File' the window defaults to less than 'full size' and continue to shrink each time a new person is added to the Share To list. There is no ability to re-size the window - so eventually, after adding a few names, the screen minimizes so that nothing can be seen anymore. I have run the 'Repair' option, and no improvement was seen. This phenomenon occurs in all Office applications.

    @Alan Jacobson

    As JohnKorchok suggested, please share us more information of your Office, Windows system and this issue for further analysis.

    On my environment with Windows 10 20H2, Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise (Version 2017 Build 14228.20226), this issue could not be reproduced.
    Please update Office to the latest to check this issue.

    Besides, I would suggest you go to OneDrive online or local OneDrive folder, then choose one file and try to share it with others to have a check.

    It appears that the issue is related to monitor resolution. When I reduce the resolution from the 4k monitor I have down to a lower resolution the problem resolves. So if you want to use the 'Sharing' feature, it appears you can't use high resolution screens.

    If it helps, no resolutions worked other than 1920 x 1080. Try that one. :-)
