Finding Hidden Dialogs in Windows 10

less than 1 minute read

I lost a dialog for an application. It slithered out of screen, well actually two screens. Apparently this is a problem that occurs when using dual monitors.

So, this is how I found it.

To find a hidden dialog in Windows 10

  1. Press the key combination or select the option that opens the hidden dialog.
  2. Press Shift + Windows key.
  3. Press left or right arrows to snap the hidden dialog to the current screen.

Alternately

  1. Press the key combination or select the option that opens the hidden dialog.
  2. Press and hold the Alt key and press the Spacebar.
  3. Release the Alt key and Spacebar, then press M (this selects the Move menu item on the dialog).
  4. Use the left or right arrows to move the dialog into view on the current screen.

Should work.
