App is trying to appear in 2nd moni

Specs: Windows XP
I usually have my XP laptop connected to a docking station and use a second monitor,keyboard,mouse.
The problem is if I shut down my computer with an app running in the second monitor, and remove the laptop from the docking station and try to bring up the same app later, it tries to go to the second monitor...which of course is not is not configured in the Display control panel.
this is very frustrating as I need that app.

The obvious solution is to shut down the app first. IMO that is good practice anyway.

Right click on the app's taskbar button and select Restore to get it out of the maximized state.

Then Hit Alt then Spacebar then the letter 'm' to activate the move command.

Then use the arrow keys to move the application from the other unseen monitor over to the one you can see.
Once you can see it then hit the Enter key. From there you can grab the menu bar and move it to where you like.
