How does one aligns the web page in the screen monitor? I tried Ctrl + Alt with no success. This has been happening often where the screen becomes smaller and moves to the right, where I cannot access the part that maximizes it.

I have a 19 inch screen size. Thank you,

not sure if this helps. But assuming you accidentally make the window bigger than your screen...

Alt+Space bar opens up the "view" options.

So:

alt +space+n = minimize current window
alt +space+x = maximize current window
alt +space+r = restore to last window option
alt +space+M = move the window around (you'll get a crosshair and you can move the window with the arrow keys).

if you just do an alt+space, it should show the menu of available options as well... which may change depending on the app you are running...

macoy already nailed it but let me simplify it a bit more since this problem can also occur with multi-monitor users where the application in question was last used on a monitor that went bad, moved, etc. so you may not even see any part of the application window at all. If so, here is a relatively easy way to handle it:

- If you see the top part of the application window, you should be able to right-click on the top portion of it and then select move, then simply move your mouse (do not click on any of the buttons during the move!):


- If you can only see the bottom portion of the application window or nothing at all, then Hold down SHIFT and then right-click on the application in the Taskbar, then select move.
Now you can simply move the mouse or use left/right arrow keys on the keyboard to drag the application window over (do not click on any of the buttons during the move!):
