The top of one of my application windows (Eudora as it happens) is off screen, so I can't grab the title bar to move it back.

On the bar at the bottom of the screen you see a mini pictorial representation of the desktops in puppy. One of them will have a rectangle in the place where your Eudora window is. Use your left mouse button and drag the little rectangle down. Eudora will move on the main screen in a similar manner.

I never knew that! But I have to use the right button.

I also never knew that.
And I also have to use the right mouse button.
But that can come in handy.

You'll have to forgive me guys. I only use this facility occasionally. You are right - it is the right button one uses, not the left as I said.

I can remember how cool I thought this was when I first read it on the forum years ago. So much easier than how to move a misplaced window in that OTHER operating system! That other OS still does not make it easy in their latest release. You can keep your Aeropeek flashiness. I like to have USEFUL functionality!

It's a shame tricks like these get forgotten - or never found by the newbies. The price we pay for not having a really good Puppy reference guide!

Sorry not to have replied. I've been away and not logging in.

Thanks for both suggestions. For me the alt+mouse works but the other solution didn't.
