Windows 7 Home Premium

I believe she got it from Wal-mart? And no. She told me about it about a week ago. It originally started with Firefox, and now Chrome is doing it as well.

Last post for the night from me - thanks for the help so far - will try to fix her specs tomorrow.

This only happens with the web browser and no other programs? Have you tried using Internet Explorer with similar effects?

windows 7 home 32 bit

The problem lies with your display settings, through control panes access the display icon, then go to change display settings, at some point you must have connected the display to an external device, TV or external laptop, all that has happened is that the display has reverted to the setting to display on another device, this can be reset with one click...Just click the option for display on main computer, hope this helps..

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

I would agree with where jonah was going, though I would bet that this computer/laptop was connected to a secondary display and then the browsers/programs were moved over there and used but not moved back before the secondary display was removed.

Something like this may also happen even if it wasn't connected to a secondary display but somehow the current monitor is identified as "monitor 2". A lot of programs will launch onto monitor 1 only :/ A snapshot of the monitor settings as shown above might shed some light on that possibility.

Anyway, the short term fix for whatever caused it is this:
1) Launch the program
2) Hover the mouse over the task bar icon for the program till the preview pops up
3) Right click the preview and click "move".
4) Press one of the arrow keys just once (any one of them).
5) Use the mouse to move the program back onto the current display. I.e. if you see it expand off to the right, move the mouse to the left and you should see it move back onto the display area.
