Windows 7: Programs opening in impossible locations

Programs opening in impossible locations

I've been having a problem recently where some programs open up on the side of the screen, and I can't drag them over because I can't move my mouse there.
It's been happening ever since I installed a custom skin. I uninstalled it and it still happens.
The programs affected are Notepad and LogMeIn Hamachi. Is there any way to fix it?

With focus on the problem windows, press Win + Shift + left/right and it should snap them to the sides of the screen with Aero Snap. Then you can drag them where you want them.

In theory, the positions should be saved when you close them afterwards.

Hello Hexary, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, this can help show you another way to move a offscreen window back.
