|Reset Internet Explorer Window Location (All Windows)|
Category: Home > Software > Internet Explorer > Appearance
Sometimes Internet Explorer may have problems with the location of the explorer window, possibly placing the window off the screen or only allowing you to minimize or maximize the window. This tweak should reset Internet Explorer to the default position.
Exit Internet explorer, then open your registry and find the key below.
Find the value named 'Window_Placement' and delete it, make sure you have highlighted the correct value as there is no Undo function.
Restart Internet Explorer and it should now be located in the default position.
User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]|
Type: REG_BINARY (Binary Value)
