Un-maximize Photo Editor makes program disapear
We just returned from vacation and want to look at our photos using Photo Editor. In the past, we've dragged this to the second (bigger) monitor, but today we can't. It starts up full maximized and therefore un-draggable. When I click the un-maximize button, the program disappears completely, as if I had minimized it. Rebooting vista does not fix it.
I speculate that vista thinks it's displaying it at some coordinate that isn't actually visible, but that's just a guess. In any case, I don't know how to fix it.
Does anyone out there have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
It's a registry entry
With some trepidation, I started rummaging around in the registry. I found an entry "Initial Position" under one of the MSPhotoEd locations with ridiculously large numbers. I reset the values to 0, 0, 200, 200. I restarted the program and when I un-maximize, lo and behold! I can see it.
Thanks for taking the time to come back, and share
There is a much easier way to get the offsite window back onto the screen.

2. Move your mouse pointer to about the centre of your screen near the top. (You will probably see the crossed-arrows "move" mouse pointer at this time).
3. Tap ONCE any of the arrow keys, up, down, left, or right, doesn't matter which.
4. Now, click your mouse. The Centre of the Title Bar of your lost window will jump to your mouse pointer. You can now resize and move your app however you like.
