Windows 7: When I click on my Documents File, it goes Off Screen!

When I click on my Documents File, it goes Off Screen!

I click the little documents icon, or if I click documents, the window appears to go all the way to the right and I can't click it because it goes off screen. This is a HUGE problem! I can't access my files unless I know their names, and I can't add things to my flash drive. I can't do anything!

Try one of the following keyboard shortcuts right after opening the Documents Library folder:

Offscreen Window - Move Back to Desktop
  1. Press Windows Key + Up Arrow (this is Maximize). Place your mouse cursor on the window's titlebar and drag it downward.
  2. Press Windows Key + Right Arrow, or Windows Key + Left Arrow. (This is Aero Snap). Place your mouse cursor on the window's titlebar and drag it downward.
  3. Shift+Right-click the Taskbar button for the Documents Library folder on the Taskbar (technically, it's Windows Explorer) and choose Move. Then use your Arrow Keys on your keyboard to move the window around by pressing them down and holding them down until it's "within reach". Then left-click once to release the window.
If none of these things work, then I won't know what else can be done.

You're welcome, squirrels! However, Brink gets the credit for the link to that tutorial!

So, what did you end up doing that worked?

Brink was the one who added it. It took me a few minutes after I replied to figure out what squirrels meant by saying "thread" instead of "post".
