How-To Bring Off-Screen Windows Back to the Main Screen

You may have found this article when you took down your second monitor and decided to go back to a single screen.

Now, you have sat down at your desk and noticed that when you open a program, it is opening on the old screen that is no longer hooked up.


Let's fix it.

Firstly, open the program. You will see it's icon on the bottom task-bar in Windows.

All you need to do is, Hold Shift + Right Click the icon.

Above is an example. In the options that appear, you will have the option to "Move" the icon.

If the option is not there, first select "Restore", then try to select "Move" again.

Once you are able to select "Move", you simply press the arrow key to move the windows back to center on your main screen.

Whew! That was fun.

Hope this helps all you solve this issue, and don't hesitate to reach out to us at the shop for any questions.

Thanks for reading,
