Often I’ll find that either the title bar of a window, or the whole window itself, is somehow “located” off the edge of the screen. This often happens when changing between my built-in laptop monitor and my larger external monitor.
Thankfully, this problem is easy to fix. Just follow these four simple steps:
- Right-click on the window’s taskbar button. (The taskbar is the bar, usually at the bottom of the screen, where the “Start” button is located along with buttons for open windows.)
- Click “Move” from the popup menu that appears.
- Now, without moving the mouse, press one of the arrow keys on your keyboard (left, right, up, or down).
- If the window doesn’t appear, move around the mouse until it does.
If it didn’t work, make sure you aren’t moving the mouse between steps 2 and 3!
