Windows 7: How to reset window position of one program to default

How to reset window position of one program to default

Hello everyone

Can anyone please tell me how to reset a single program's window to its default position? In other words, I want the program to appear on the screen in the position that it would have appeared if I had first installed it. I don't want to reset *all* my folder settings -- just the settings for that one program's window.
