Resized window off monitor screen, and can't move back to viewing

Resized Media Center window and inadvertently moved it off-screen. I've
tried using the "move" option on the taskbar tab to no avail. The
multi-directional arrow appears, but can't grab anything. My "minimized"
Media Center window seems permanently stuck off-screen!

I can only use it maximized, which of course is not what I want to do.

When I "minimize" it, I can see it "fly" to the left of the monitor screen.

Anyone have any suggestions? I'm listening, and I appreciate it! Thank you.

Try changing your monitors resolution to a smaller value, and then grab it.
Then set the monitor back.

Select the program on the task bar to make it active......press
ALT+SPACEBAR the programs shortcut menu will appear, select MOVE now
use your keyboard arrow keys to move the program back to where you
want.

Re: Resized window off monitor screen, and can't move back to view

Thanks you two. I'm sure it's due to my idiocy, but neither of these
suggestions worked for me. Note to self: be. careful. resizing. media
center window. That is, IF I ever get it back.

Will try again to make sure I followed each tip accurately.

Thanks so much for your time, both of you.

Uh, it worked, it worked, IT WORKED!!!! I tried again, and got it back. I
just had to hang on for a minute with the keyboard arrow keys.

THANK YOU! It's great having that $*O(%U Media Center window back again!

....and, I've saved your instructions....just in case, lol!

Thank You Problem Fixed.

I have Whidows XP professional Media Center.

Only in the Media Center was the screen stuck either in Media Center full screen or minimized off the page, but to the right.

I searched for over a year to find a fix.:cry:

Fix:
I opened Media center, made it active.
In the minimize off the screen mode, I right clicked the toolbar Medis Center icon, I selected move, and as you stated with the keyboard arrows moved the screen left back into view.
Yay!
Thank You very much! :party:
Jim
