If you cannot place a window partially off screen
July 25, 2020
I like sometimes to drag and drop a window partially off screen in order to view information I need to monitor, such as a conversion’s progress, while working with other open windows.
Yet Windows 10 (and sometimes Windows 7) won’t let me do this; it immediately brings such windows back to full view!
At the Easy Access Center in the Control Panel > “Make the Mouse Easier to Use”, I checked the option “Prevent windows from being automatically arranged…”, yet even this did not let me enjoy partial placement of open windows off screen.
Here is a solution I’ve found accidentally. If you Ctrl+Drag, or Shift+Drag a window and drop it partially or completely off screen, it will stay there!
- Place a Christmas Tree on your desktop, with X-mas Tree
- Fix corrupted archives, even extract partially damaged files, with ZIP Repair
- Place several PDF pages on a single paper page, with Montax imposer
- Repair damaged or partially downloaded zip archives, with Object FIX ZIP
- Toggle italics or bold in a selection in MS Word completely, partially, alternating or not
- List all keyword occurrences, even to edit them in place, with Registry Finder
- Hide your screen and let only a window appear, with Zorro ScreenMask
- Turn off your PC automatically while you are at bed, with Delayed Shutdown
- Update Office or Windows off line whenever you like, with WSUS Offline Update
- If you cannot install a printer on Windows
- If you cannot customize Firefox navigation bar, add new icons etc
- If you cannot eject your DVD drive but only after several attempts
