Windows tip: retrieve off-screen window

This post is not specifically data related, but is more of a Windows tip that I want to remember.  I had my laptop hooked up to a second monitor, which I just recently removed, and now I’ve had a window pop up off screen where I can’t get to it.  How-To Geek pointed me to the solution here: once the window is in focus (although still off-screen), right click it on the Taskbar and select Move.  Then hit any of the arrow keys (Left, Right, Up, Down), and then move your mouse, and the window will be back! right where your mouse is.  Easy enough, but definitely frustrating if you don’t know how.
