How do I move window to left on screen

Specs: Windows XP

Right edge of window showing while running Yahoo on Internet Explorer is enough off screen that I can't drag it back to the left. How do I re-center the window?

Try expanding the window by clicking on the box next to the red X in upper right corner of the screen.

If that works, then immediately close IE and the reopen it to make full screen the default.

Note that the box I instructed you to click can toggle from a single box to a box inside of a box. When a single box you can grab any corner or side and pull the screen in or out.

If the box is single you can also left click and hold the top of the toolbar to move the screen in any direction.

No help. Answers didn't address the question.

Did you try clicking and dragging the entire screen by the colored part of the task bar?

Instead of being a total asswipe and expecting or demanding people to help you, you would be amazed how far a " thanks but that didn't work" will get you.

Thanks for that THX. I don't think the OP is performing the operation I described either.

The original post "question" is "clear as mud". Even so, here's a couple of stabs at it:

• Right-clk IE on the Taskbar
• Select appropriate action (...Move, Size, Maximize, etc.)


• Alt-Ctrl-Del (Task Manager)
• Applications Tab
• Right-clk IE
• Maximize.

Dragging the colored part of the task bar worked, "Othehill'. Many thanks for the suggestion.

It solves the problem one frame at a time, but, hey, that's a lot better than where I was (in Desperationville).

Thank you for breaking the code for me.

"Impatient", I'll try your suggestions.

If you follow the entire suggestion and after fixing the screen you close the browser immediately then reopen it. It should then open correctly.
