Windows 7: Disappearing windows?

Window starting off the screen?

I have an app, which for some reason, had the window disappear. I see the app icon in the taskbar, and when I hover over the icon, I can see what goes on in the window. I have sound coming from the app. I can see it when I do -tab. However, when I click on it, it won't show up. When I select it after doing windows-tab, it won't show up. I think it might have gotten off the screen.

Is there any way to fix this (as in, center the window on the monitor)?

EDIT: I can confirm it's starting off the screen, but I can't tell where.

If it's just off screen, you can move the window back in view by:

1) using WinKey+Tab, make sure the problem window is selected
2) Press Alt+Spacebar, release spacebar (still holding down Alt key)
3) Still holding down alt key, press M and release both Alt & M
4) Use arrows to move window in desired direction.

If this is not your problem, try restarting the system.
