Rescue My Window. It's Stranded In No-windows Land.

Recommended Posts

  • Been looking online for the answer to this infuriating problem but not much luck so far.

    I have a window which is so far offscreen that I cant select anything in order to drag it back on screen. All I can see is the shadow of the window (it has gone off the top of the screen.

    If I use expose all the windows come onto the screen, but clicking on it sends it back out again.

    I am on a mac with tiger.

    Is there a way anyone knows of how to move a screen around without a mouse? I remember I used to be able to do it years ago when I used to have a pc.

    INFURIATING!

  • Closing the window is not a problem.

    But when it opens again it's off the screen. The window in question are my equalizer settings for itunes which I need to have access to.

    Colibert@ my powerbook is already at the max resolution. If I down the res, I can see even less of the screen. :(

    stupid question but you have tried clicking to drag it away? i cant even get one completley off the screen, i literally have a line of pixels showing but can still grab it!!

    or double clicking should knock it back onto screen

    i cant get it off anymore that this, can barely see it but can still click on it

  • There is nothing to click.

    Here is a pick of the window. You can see the shadow of the window, but there is nothing to grab or click on.

    Is there a way maybe to hide the bar at the top of the screen?

    PS. The window at the top in the picture, not the software update on the bottom...

  • Its the equalizer window for itunes, so there are no files in it.

    I have no idea how it got that far off the screen. laugh.gif Maybe I can hook the laptop up to my tv and get itunes to open up on that cos the resolution on that is 1080p. There's an idea.
