I am running Chrome OS in a virtual machine. For some reason, the browser has gone to the bottom right corner and there is no way I can drag it back. Because of this problem, the whole user account becomes unusable. I tried to delete the useraccount, but I cannot seem to do it as it's the default account.

I know everything works if I use a different account, but it's better to have it fixed. Any idea?

What OS are you running Chrome in (i.e. The VM OS)? If it is Windows, refer to this previous SU answer. – fideli Feb 20 '12 at 7:38
Fideli, this question is about Chrome OS. – iglvzx Feb 20 '12 at 8:15
yes, it's Chrome OS. to be more specific, it's Chromium, but it's Chrome OS anyway – Foodrules Feb 20 '12 at 8:59
Can you put a screenshot? – Ido Green Feb 21 '12 at 15:01

You can do this using the keyboard:

  1. Select the window that you want to move back to the main screen area via the task bar or Alt+Tab

  2. Press Alt+Space

  3. Press M, then an arrow key (eg Down)

  4. Move the mouse/cursor to snap the window onto the screen and move it as desired

This works for Windows. Do you know if it results in the same behavior under Chrome OS? – iglvzx Feb 23 '12 at 20:38
I don’t know about the window context-menu or sizing controls, but at least the Alt+Tab part to select the window should work. Maybe Ctrl+Alt+? can give more information. – Synetech Feb 23 '12 at 23:26
