Windows 8 | Recovering lost off screen windows

At work I am running windows 8 on a laptop that has multiple monitors attached.  When I unplug the monitors and use the laptop remotely, sometimes application windows will appear off screen and I’m unable to use that application.  Even restarting the program doesn’t work sometime.  Here is the solution to bring the window back to your main screen:

  1. Look for your program icon in the task bar
  2. Hold down shift and control, then right click on the icon
  3. Click on Move
  4. Press the left arrow key
  5. Move your mouse and you should see the window
  6. Click where you want the window to be placedmove
