Can Not Find a Program Running in Windows 7? (helpful Keyboard Shortcuts)

Updated: at 02:12 PM

So, if you run a notebook with different monitor configurations, you may find yourself unable to find a program you launched to a different monitor previously.  Happened to me with NotePad++ today.

So, in Vista, you would right click on the taskbar program, choose move, then use the arrow keys to bring it back.

In Windows 7, press Shift-Right Mouse Button, then choose move, then press the arrows and you are good as new.  10 minutes wasted searching, but I’m good now.

Here are some other short cuts.
