How To Move An Off-Screen Window Into View

Isn’t it nice to have dual 21″ or larger wide-screen monitors in the office?  Don’t you wish you had them at home, especially when an application opens itself off-screen?

Well, this won’t magically give you your nice in office setup, but it will bring that pesky program into view.  There are two basic ways.

First is to alt tab to that program and right-click it in the task bar.  From this menu pick Move.  Use your arrow keys to slide it into view.  Then a simple left click of the mouse or hit your enter key and you’re done.

The second method can be used all of the time.  The reason for this one is because some programs do not offer that move option.  In this case, you still alt tab to the program.  Next you hit Alt + Space + M.  That puts it in move mode, so now you just use your arrow keys to move that window into view.  Finally, like in the first method, you can hit your enter key or do a left click of the mouse.
