Bringing invisible window to main screen

tips & tricks

Using multiple monitors is great but quite often I have to disconnect them and move my laptop around. When I connect them back sometimes I find some windows act weirdly. For example a minimized window goes to an non-existent monitor when I try to maximize it.

To fix that issue, I got this quick tip from a colleague:

Instead of clicking on the application in task bar, Shift + Right Click. In the context window there’s a Maximize option which brings the lost window to the main monitor.
