    word 97 screen location

    without notice my screen location for word 97 has moved so that only the bottom 1/4 of the word 97 screen shows on the monitor.Any suggestion on how to move it back the middle of the screen?

    Try right-mouse on the task-bar icon and select 'maximize'

    While this solution should work, the next time the restore button is clicked the problem will re-emerge.

    Instead of Maximise select Move and use the cursor keys to position the "restored window" the way you would like it.

    You can also access the same menu through the keyboard:
    Alt+Spacebar accesses the menu, & then:
    M followed by arrow keys moves the window,
    S followed by arrow keys sizes the window,
    X will maximize it,
    N will minimize it, &
    R will restore it.

    This is a bug in Word's relationship with Windows. It is often seen if you have the Office Shortcuts bar active on the side of your screen. Eventually it will drift off your screen entirely! Then the only way to view it is Maximized.

    Often peopel can get it back from this condition by:
    1) Having at least one other window open in Windows.
    2) Minimize all Windows.
    3) Right-click on the taskbar and select "Cascade."

    This usually will move the "normal" Word window back on your screen as one of the cascaded windows.

    Hope this helps.
