If you, like me, often work with an extra screen attached to your notebook,
you would surely have come across the problem where your applications open ‘off-screen’
or in other words, on your secondary screen, even when it is not plugged in.
WinAmp is especially finicky with this one and the solution is not as straightforward
as many people might have you believe. Or should I rather say, in Windows 7 the
solution is not as simple as expected.
The fix in Windows XP:
* Right-click the WinAmp application in the task bar
* Select “Move”
* Use the cursor keys and move the window into the primary viewing area.
The fix in Windows 7:
* Right-click the WinAmp application in the task bar, but also hold down shift while doing so
* At this stage you can select move and try to move the screen all you want, it has no effect.
* Open the context menu’s as shown in the following screenshot.
* Select ANY other skin and voilà, WinAmp returns.
Selecting the theme that was previously selected will still open the windows off-screen but at least you can get your WinAmp back in the interim while not connected to your secondary monitor.
I hope this helps at least 1 person out there cause it sure as hell caused me more than enough head-scratching.
