Recover a Lost Window

I’m sure this has happened to you: a window strays outside of the visible desktop area and you can’t seem to grab it with your pointer.

All is not lost.

Click the button for it down in the toolbar to bring it into focus. Hit Alt+Spacebar and it will bring up a System menu (Restore, Move, Size, etc.) Usually this shows up in the upper left hand corner of a window, but on one that’s offscreen it appears on your desktop as close to the renegade as it can.

Press “M” for Move and use the arrow key to bring it back into view.


Once it’s where you want it, hit Enter or click your left mouse button.
