Windows 7: Program windows not showing up

Program windows not showing up

The title explains itself. After I click on either the Computer icon or the Recycle Bin icon, the window opens off screen. On the task bar at the bottom of the screen, it shows up. When you double click on it, you can see the program page quickly "fly" off the screen to open. How can you undue this so it will open up on the monitor screen?

Is your computer set up to use two monitors? If so that must be changed

No, just one. How do you change that setting then?

Before we start making changes, give me a little history. Just start, did you do something, new computer, always like this, what? Everything goes off screen?

The computer is a month old and never did this. My brother was on it when I was out. Came back and noticed it doing that.

If that is the story I doubt if it is set for 2 monitors. Does the desktop look normal, what about web pages and douments?

Dont worry, may take time but this will get fixed. If i have to leave others will help too. Just know it will be fixed.

Make a system restore now just in case.
