Recovering an off-screen Window

If you have ever suffered the spooky problem of an application window flying off your laptop  screen and into cyberspace this will hep.

You may know what I mean – the application is running. You can see it in the taskbar, but you can’t see it on the screen. When you try to open the window it scurries off the screen. Follow the simple steps below to force the open window back onto your screen.

  1. Alt-tab to the active window
  2. Alt+Space to open the right-click menu
  3. Hit the M key
  4. Use the Arrow key
  5. Move your mouse – this should drag the active window back into view
