Windows 7: Really weird, cant open folders please help.

Really weird, cant open folders please help.

When I try to open any folder, control panel, my computer, etc it flys waaaaaayy over to the right where I can not get at it no matter what, I took a screen shot of it flying over right side of my monitor where I can't access it. I believe the problem is rooted in another another problem I am having, where if I leave my computer idle it appears to kill explorer.exe showing only my background image, however I can't access task manager trying to do so brings me to a blank screen. I usually just reset it to fix the problem, although sometimes it can take more then one reset.

After taking these screenshots, it appears to have somewhat explained the problem as it appears I have two desktops or something. But how the hell do I fix it?

Hello Rotic, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can right click on the desktop and click on Screen resolution. From here, you should be able to see if you have more than one monitor listed, and to disable the other one if you do.

No problem. You can open the Run window and type this command below to open Screen Resolution instead.

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl


Afterwards, you can move the opened offscreen window back to the main monitor.

Afraid not, I can't click the move function even when the window is maximized.

When the window is seleted can you press win key + left arrow to "snap" it to the left side?

I LOVE YOU. Now, anyone know how to turn the second monitor off? Cause it says I only have one widescreen monitor on.
