With everyone using multiple monitors at high resolutions nowadays with Windows there will come a point in time when you are going to find yourself facing a dilemma – you’ve added or changed monitors or resolutions and now one of your applications has its main window or child windows hidden off-screen. How do your bring these back so you can see them when you can’t just drag and click with your mouse?
A co-worker of mine was going through this agony today when I finally found this little tip posted online, and thought I’d share it with the world. If nothing else, hopefully it can save you the 3 hours he spent pulling his hair out trying to figure it out!
To move a hidden window that is off screen in Windows (XP and above):
1. Hold down Alt + Spacebar
2. Press the M key
3. Use the arrow keys to relocate the window
4. Press the Enter key when you have the Window in the desired location.
