Window top bar off screen

  cpn 18:56 04 May 2011

Hello again. Can anyone help with this problem? Using windows media player when I reduce the size of the window from full screen to window size (not minimise) the top of the window is off the screen at the top of the screen and I am therefore unable to move it around. Does anyone know how to restore it to its usual state?

If you put the Window into the "Restore" state and then press and hold the left Alt Key, tap the space bar and then release the Alt Key. Press and release the "M" key and then use the navigation arrow keys to move the Window around the screen. Press the Enter key when you reach the desired location.

For finer control of movement of the Window combine the navigation arrow keys with the depresed and held down "Control" key.

Hello Peter Tried what you suggested but it only moves the inner content of the window

Hello Peter I got it sorted by right clicking in the task bar and using the move option. Many thanks for you advice it will be very usefull for the future for other situations Stephen

Thanks for the info about right clicking on the task-bar icon; I hadn't thought about that one.
