I was confronted with a little problem today and wanted to know if any of you guys knew any trick for it. I do a lot of presentations with projectors, so I often switch windows from one screen to another, and I happened some days ago to move a configuration popup on the projector screen, and leaving it here. So when back at my office I turned my laptop back on, I was unable to see that configuration popup again because I only had one screen, and the popup was placing itself outside of the visible screen.
I already know some options for dealing with this :
- Right-click on the window's icon in the task bar and choose
- Use the
- Use the window's system menu with the keyboard to access the
Moveoption (Alt+Space, M)
- Right-clicking on the task bar and choosing
But none of these worked... I guess that's because it's a configuration popup, with no system menu to access a Move option (I couldn't find any other popup with the same flaw, mine was the "Add New Virtual Machine" wizard in Virtual PC 2007 SP1).
So I wanted to know if anyone knew any other manipulations that would have allowed me to get that window back on my screen ? Keyboard shortcut ? Registry tweak to reset windows positions ? In my case I was able to bring the window back by borrowing a screen from a coworker, but what if I can't find any secondary screen nearby ?
Thanks in advance :)
