    How do I pull a window back on screen?
    Not sure where to post this, so I'll try "Anything Goes". What is the trick for retrieving a window back onto the screen that for some reason is "out of reach". All of a sudden the Formatting Palette in Microsoft Word X "flies" off the screen when I click on the icon to call it up. I can see it coming/going, but it ends up off the screen. I'm using system 10.3.9. Any ideas?

    there has to be a corner or an edge or something that you can point and click on.

    No, there is nothing left of it to grab -- it disappears completely off the bottom of the screen.

    Don't use Microsoft Word? :mac:

    Or try resetting the toolbar (Tools>Customize>Toolbars)

    I tried changing the screen resolution, but the palette still flies all the way off the screen. Resetting the toolbar didn't fix it either. Anybody got any other ideas?
