For some reason, notepad.exe starts up off the physical screen in some virtual location. As such I cannot use it. It's in the taskbar so I can kill it. Is there anyway to have it reset its top left corner so I can use it again?

AltSpace, M. Then move it.

Upon pressing Alt-Space,M -- I'd suggest using/holding down arrow keys to get the window moving first. Once you see it, you should be able to use your mouse to move the window to where you want it. –  krhainos May 9 '11 at 17:04

If you feel comfortable going through the registry, here's a way to reset Notepad's window position:

  1. Close Notepad

  2. On the Registry editor, go to: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Notepad

  3. Delete fSaveWindowPositions and/or iWindowPos*
