I'm using GNOME 2.16 on Red Hat. I was doing some work in the Terminal and, by accident I entered a command that made the windows for all programs to be stuck to the top-left corner of the desktop with no easy way to disable it. I don't even know what command I entered. Does anyone know of a way to disable that?

GNOME is not an OS. It's also not developed by Red Hat. –  larsmans May 27 '12 at 22:28
When did he mean GNOME is an OS? Or that it was developed by Red Hat? Douche. –  user84207 Sep 25 '13 at 9:25

This sounds like a temporary setting that may go away (go back to normal) when you reboot. Have you rebooted?

The OP might not even need to reboot. Try: pressing ctrl-alt-backspace to restart the X server or logout by another method, and then log back in. –  Dan D. May 28 '12 at 4:12
