Retrieving windows on hidden desktops


New Member

Somehow Windows 7 sleep mode has corrupted my dual display config (it has resulted in my desktops being switched around on my monitors (primary is now monitor 2 etc., monitor #1 now displays only in green etc. etc.) and all my apps are on the wrong monitor. A reboot fixes it, but Firefox still has several windows on 'hidden desktops', which I can no longer retrieve (or move back) onto my primary desktop. I click on the taskbar icon and I can see the motion of them restoring and zooming off to a hidden desktop off the side of my screen.

Does anyone know how to retrieve these windows from the abyss? Is it possible to reset the remembered "window-is-displayed-on-desktop-#" information or is there something else?
