Child window stuck under the parent window - can not move it back down

Q: Child window stuck under the parent window - can not move it back down

When you move a pop up window too high the title/tool bar of the child window is hidden by the main window's tool bar/title bar. As a result the child window is stuck and can not be resized or moved back to the original position or any where you can see
the whole window. Though you can scroll the contents and all the window itself is stuck. The child window never gets the focus back. Unless you close the main window you can not get the child window back to its normal position.
Is there any way that you can move the whole window (not just the contents) back to its original location or maximize that inner window only. Any short cut to move the window only results in moving the main window not the child window.
Thx.

Preferred Solution: Child window stuck under the parent window - can not move it back down

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Issue in IE11:

when parent window had a alert triggered, that makes the child window lose focus and go behind

Scenerio:

There is a button in parent page (domain A) and on click of the button Popup window (Domain B) will open and child window will communicate back to parent window. when parent window had a alert triggered, that makes the child window lose focus and go behind
only in IE11 browser.

IE edge and other browsers we can see the popup window on top of the parent window.

Hi Champs....

Just want a liitle suggestion and a feedback on my current query, which is as follows: -

A softwatre developed from our vendors on VB, & Access platform, has different Modules.
In each modules, there are some categories, and clicking on them opens a child window.

The size of the child window created in the software is not very comfortable in viewing the details, as the size of the window is prety small, say 2/5 of the parent window.

And, considering the Parent Window size as equivalent to that of the Excel file (maximized view), the view area for the child windows created is very small.

I am not pretty familiar with VB, and hence require a technical help on the same.
I think that the increase in size is possible, through reworking on the Forms.

Please revert with the possible solutions on the same.

Regards,
Divy

Popup is going behind  the parent window in IE11 when focus is on parent window 

steps :

we are working on cross domain communication between parent and popup window .

There is a button in parent page (domain A) and on click of the button Popup window (Domain B) will open and child window will communicate back to parent window after popup window is losing focus and going behind the parent window only in IE11. IE edge and

The bottom of the cleanup window is below the bottom of the screen.  I press alt-space and then Move from the menu.  I then use the up arrow to move the window so I can get to the bottom to resize it.  If I press enter to drop it there or

I've selected "Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen" and even turned off aero.

2. Resizing the Window (IE only) to fit the image

I've looked on ITR.org and haven't found what I'm looking for.
 

A:Open Child Window to Fit Image

There are some scripts out there to do this... and there is no reason it has to be IE only. I can write something for you. but I need to know exactly what you need. Would you like to specify the height and width of the image that you want the window opened to so its a different size than the original image?
Or you could have it detect the height and width of the image and open to the same size.
Or maybe you would like it increased by a scale factor (double the width and double the height for example).

What I would like to do:
I have an MDI form with two child forms. The MDI form has a set of menu options that unhide/hide each of the child forms - with checks by the menu entries. The checks work nicely. However, if the user closes one of the child forms, the check is still showing in the parent form menu. I would like to control the checked status of the parent form menu if the user closes a child form.

I tried to include the following sub in the child form:

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
frmMain.mnuDeck.Checked = False
End Sub

However, VB thinks I'm trying to load another MDI form -- and this won't work.

I also tried to mess with the QueryUnload Event, but got nowhere.

So, my question is: how do I control the parent form menu properties when a child is closed.

Profuse thanks in advance.

Here's my problem. I'm creating an evaluation form. I have a parent form that captures the Project Information data, then 5 subforms, each containing the same set of fields (Requirement, Score, Comment etc), but geared around 5 different categories (5 phases of the project which each have their own requirements(questions).
My problem is when I create records in 2 child forms, the next time I open the form for that parent record, I see all the child records copied under each of the 2 child forms.
An evaluation is rarely completed in one sitting, so I need the records to be kept divided in the form view.
I have used 1 table to hold all the child records, and used queries to divide them for the child forms. So I am assuming the problem is that all the children live in the same table.
I tried creating separate tables for each of the 5 categories, but then I can't get the relationships to work between the parent form and the child records.
Can you suggest a table/form/query structure that might solve my issue? I can upload my file if needed.

If a top-order folder is set to give "Everyone" access and Full control, and I wish this to apply to every subfolder, sub-subfolder and file i.e. everything within the parent folder - is it just a matter of ticking the "replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" - and will that do everything at every tier, or is it necessary to apply it to each sub-folder (would have thought the former)

Wasn't sure where to put this. It's not a Windows 7 Problem Per Se... So many truly brilliant regulars here though I thought I'd give it a (long?) shot.

The app loads in the top left corner of the monitor (see screenshot) and is not resizeable or movable. The only manipulation it will allow is minimize to task bar. I do not like this

I have looked for registry entries and/or *.ini files that would govern screen position but have not found such. I've also looked for third party workarounds that would allow me to reposition or resize this window. I've not found anything.

The surveillance package is run from this card Product Detail The software is called Super DVR. Remote Viewing Software for the QSDT4PCRC-BNC and QSDT42DPCRC PCI Cards

A:Move an unmovable window?

Try this, hover your mouse over the taskbar icon until the preview pops up. Right click the preview and see if the Move option isn't grayed out. This will allow the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the window.

OR

Highlight (hover over) the taskbar icon. Press Alt+Space bar, then M. Now use the keyboard arrows to move. Press the Shift key when you close it might very well save that location.

Any time this has happened to me, it was because I had a 'flaky' mouse, which was 'auto-double-clicking' like crazy when I was dragging a window around the screen. Putting a 'good' mouse on the computer fixed the problem for me.

If you try a 'known-good' mouse and it doesn't fix the problem for you, then I would try uninstalling the mouse driver by doing the following (don't worry, we will get it back again):

1) Start up Device manager:
Start --> Control Panel --> All Control Panel Items --> Device Manager

2) Click on the small triangle beside 'Mice and other pointing devices', to expand it.

When you move a window, only the outline of the window moves with your cursor; after you 'drop' it, then the actual window comes over. Is there any way to have it so the window travels along with the cursor?

Thanks!

Take a look here Visual Effects Settings - Change and ensure that the option Show window contents while dragging is checked.

When I am looking at a folder with lots of items in it, I prefer to view using list mode. the problem I am having is that when I click on an item on the very right side column it zooms the window over so that item is now on the left. so when I try to double click something on the right side I end up scrolling way over. how can I make the window not scroll over when I click an item on the right side under list viewing option.

A:how to make list not move the window?

Odd. i use list view and when i click a file on the far right the view jumps just one column to the left, not all the way like yours. I have the folders set up as follows :right click in the folder sort by TYPE and ASCENDING click on more and all i have checked is NAME TYPE and SIZE. Try setting up your folders this way and see if they behave more like mine do. Not sure if this will have any effect really but worth a try.

Hello, I am running win7 rc 64bit build 7100 in Dual monitor mode. I have a problem finding/moving an applications window that has gone out of the viewing area. I am new to Vista/Win 7 interface and not familiar with how to move a window with the arrow keys as I do with XP by right clicking on the running application in the taskbar and selecting Move. The application is Sony ebook reader. This happened when I had to remove one of the dual monitors for repair...upon returning it to the configuration, the ebook application starts, but the window is no where on either display. If I right click on the running application in the taskbar, there are no options to move. Other then removing the application, prefs and reinstalling...is there a way to bring that window back to the active areas? Thanks.

A:Move/Recover Offscreen Window

Windows 7 has a cool new feature that should help.  Click the icon in the taskbar to ensure that the program has focus. Then hold down the Windows key and press the right-arrow a few times. That should move the window across your screens and eventually bring it back onto the screen that is still active.Dave Bishop

I have an application where the subwindows are placed too high so that the title bar of the subwindow is underneath the menus of the application window.
How can I move the subwindow downward without touching the title bar?

Hi There!

I would love it, if I could assign a button to my keyboard that would take the currently highlighted window, and move to it screen 1, 2 or 3 in it's exact current size and position.. Anyone know if that is possible? I know you can move them 1 screen at a time, but I'd like to be able to just hit a single key or shortcut.

A:Keyboard Shortcut to Move Window

Hello Networkn,

You can use these shortcut keys:

Windows Key + Shift + Left Arrow = Moves the current active window over one monitor to the left.

Windows Key + Shift + Right Arrow = Moves the current active window over one monitor to the right.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
