While using Microsoft Windows, I had a window that had somehow fallen completely off of my screen. Right-clicking the window in the Taskbar and selecting Maximize brought it back, but there was no way I could get the window restored to where I could move it around my screen with my mouse.
Luckily, there are a couple of ways to bring off-screen windows back tot he desktop screen.
- In Windows 8, 7, and Vista, hold down the “Shift” key while right-clicking the item in the taskbar, then select “Move“. In Windows XP, right-click the item in the task-bar and select “Move“.
- Once you have managed to arrow the window back onto the screen, you can use your mouse to drag it to a new position.
Right-click a blank area of the task-bar, then select “Cascade windows“.
