I opened an app and the Dock was in the way so it automatically adjusted up and under the Finder. It seems to remember this position whenever I reopen it. I can "Zoom" but I really don't want to because it doesn't i the issue. I can only use the window in "Zoom Mode", then.


I'm running Leopard 10.5.8

Bring to front doesn't help.


Spaces is the answer. Solved. Open spaes via hotkey and drg the window.

leopard or snow leopard (or tiger, or something else?) – James Polley Jan 7 '10 at 8:24
"I can Zoom but i dont really want to" What does that mean? Can you get to the app and 'un-stick' it by zooming? – Connor W Jan 7 '10 at 8:43

I hit F8 to view all the spaces and then moved the window like that. - Spaces don't show the Dock and Finder Bar in that view.
