OH my goodness. Often my window gets off screen, particularly when I've undocked and had my gradebook on the second monitor. This trick brings it back on to my window.

1) Press Alt + Tab and click the window off screen.
2) Click Alt+Space
3) Click M
4) Click any arrow key
5) Move the mouse

Voila it pops back on the screen.

I want to remember this for myself as much as share it with you. Those of you with double monitors will appreciate this trick.

  • Just hit any one of the arrow keys (Left, Right, Down, Up), move your mouse, and the window should magically “pop” back onto the screen.


    Note: For keyboard savvy people, you can just alt-tab to the window, use Alt+Space, then M, then Arrow key, and then move your mouse.


    This should work on any version of Windows. It’s really amazing how many people are not aware of this little trick.
