Question

how can i move a window offscreen?

Oct 18, 2016 3:49AM PDT

hey guys, this is somewhat of a dumb question but i really want to know for important reason... when you typically try to move a window outside the screen, it will still show the top part of the window.. i would like to know if i can completely move it outside the screen while holding the left mouse button and then just bring it back on, without having to minimize it...

You can completely move a window to a second screen. That's completely out of the first screen.

Suppose these windows weren't on any screen, then how would you select which one to move back?

I believe Autoit can do that.

So yes, you can with Autoit. This is to only note the app and not get into its use. For that you dive into the documentation.
