Move Off-Screen Window in Windows

Have you ever had a window that ended up off of your screen and were unable to move it back into view?  I’ve personally had this occur after disconnecting a monitor from my laptop which I had my desktop extended on.  However, there’s a simple trick to move the Window back into view of your desktop.

Make the Off-Screen Window Active

  • Hold the Alt key down and then press Tab key until you’ve selected the Window that is off-screen


Select Move for the Active Window

  • Hold the Alt key down, press the Space-bar key, then press the M key

Move Your Window Back Into View

  • You can now move the window in the desired direction with the arrow keys
