I am using an external monitor but last week I went on vacation and when I turned on my laptop and different programms they were just displayd outside of the laptop screen where I can't get to the window :D. For browser there is no such a problem. I am using Windows 7. Of course I tried to adjust the reselution settings, but it seems to be the right (highest and recommended) one. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance

You mean your programs are out of sight? Offscreen Window - Bring it back to desktop
