Unveiling a Hidden Screen

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. I’m in a funny bind. I recently made some changes in the way my screen displays, and now when I open a Word or Excel file, sometimes the top of the document is hidden. The problem is more than cosmetic; with the top missing, I can’t access the title bar and I can’t move the image to correct it. Help!

A. I know the problem. It once baffled me, too. Try pressing Alt+Spacebar. That’s the same as clicking on the small document icon in the top left corner of the window (see right).

The underlined M (Alt+ M) in the menu is the shortcut for Move ; just use the arrow keys to position the window where you want it and press Enter to drop the window into place.
