Thread: window opens off screen

  1. #1

    Default window opens off screen

    I have a Motion 1400. It is three years old. When I open programs like PowerPoint, the window opens off the screen--it seems to go to the upper right side but off the viewing area. I can't get to it to control the program. Outlook does the same--when I hit reply, the window opens off screen.

    I haven't found a way to repair this problem except to restore to the previous day when the problem was not happening. I don't know if I am using a software program that causes this issue-it's almost like the computer is placing the window on an extended desktop only I don't have another moniter attached.

    Anyone have a similar problem or can help me resolve this one.

    It sounds like you might have had a external monitor on it at some point and those programs are going to that monitor that is not there now. If that is the case try and hook up a external monitor and the same time and see if you can see the program windows that are going off screen. If this is the case then all you will have to do is drag them back to the main screen. I hope that helps.

    You can also try this.

    Right click on the application's task bar icon (e.g. PowerPoint) then click "Move".

    Keep hitting the left arrow key until the application window appears.
