Windows 7: Reset all window positions and sizes to default?

Reset all window positions and sizes to default?

I have a dual monitor setup. After making some changes to the orientation/positioning of the 2 monitors, I've noticed that a lot of windows are now partially or even completely offscreen. This is especially problematic with MDI programs (programs that have sub-windows inside them, like Photoshop's dialog boxes and palette panes), as there's no way to interact with the offscreen inner windows and bring them back onscreen.

How can I reset absolutely all window positions of every single program? The registry modifications at Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default fixed Windows Explorer and a tiny handful of other programs, but not even WMP and Notepad were fixed.

I think you hold down the Control key when starting the program to reset it's window position to Default.

Then try the Alt key. It may also be program specific. A google search should turn up all you want to know.
