Somehow, my IE8 "Developer Tools" window has become stuck somehow in a weird position, and I can't figure out what to do in order to get the application to show it like a regular window again.
I have no idea what I did to cause this situation.
Specifically what's going on is that if I click on the IE8 "Developer Tools" entry in the menu, it toggles between being checked and unchecked. When checked, however, there's no visible window for the developer tools. An entry does appear in the task bar, but all I can do is right-click and choose "Maximize". Then, the developer tools show up, but (of course) maximized. I don't want the window to be maximized; I just want it to be a regular window. However, if I click the control on the window title bar, it goes away again.
This situation is persistent across reboots. (I'm running Windows XP in a VirtualBox VM, if that matters, but this has been working without incident for a very long time now so I doubt that's a factor.)
So is there something I can reset, somewhere, so that whatever bogus positioning information the browser thinks it knows about the "Developer Tools" window can go back to normal?
