How to? Off screen move?

May 20, 2008
I often use an external monitor to extend display and often open TCMD on that external display. However, this causes a problem when the display is not extended. TCMD opens off of the display area. For other apps in this situation, I could use the key sequence ALT, Down Arrow, 'M' and move the app back to my visible display. Unfortunately, with TCMD, Alt shows the Home item and not the System Menu.

How can I reset the TCMD display position to move it back to the visible area after it was opened previously on the extended display?

Alt+Space opens the System menu in most Windows programs. I've never seen just Alt by itself do it...

No problem! Another thing I noticed when having to do that with any program is that after hitting M, just one press of an arrow key is needed and it's stuck to the mouse cursor, so the mouse can then be used to bring it back too.
