Help, my application opens outside the Windows 8 viewing area

you know the problem, the application window maximizes, but outside the Windows 8 viewing area and no way to retrieve it, resize, move….. #DOH !

the trick:

  • use ALT-TAB to select the application
  • then use the combination WINDOWS + LEFT ARROW keys to move the screen back in sight !
