This situation arise when you change your screen solution and mostly seen when you change your monitor which have different resolution.
Use the following steps to solve the problem
1. close all opening windows (optional: help decrease the confusion with other running applications)
2. Alt+Tab - then select the program window that is having problems.
3. Alt+Space - this will show the program's window's menu that have the "Move" option.
4. Memorize the location where the menu appear (usually on the left or the right corner of the screen)
5. Navigate to the "Move" option then Left-Click/Enter
6. Hold the Arrow Keys using the opposite direction with where the menu appear to move the until you actually see the program's window. (e.g Menu appear on the left corner --> you hold the Right Arrow key)

Hope this help
