Reset windows Position? (normally dual monitor, today 1 and windows are stuck on '2nd' monitor...)

Normally I run dual monitors. Today I'm without my second monitor and have a little problem. I've got a window that I last had open on the 2nd monitor. Today when that window opens up I can't see it because the position of the window is outside my current view range.

Short of hooking up a 2nd monitor, is there any way to get that window to display again on my main monitor?  Also as a side note... the window is a popup of another application, so I can't see it or interact with it via the windows task bar (i.e., it doesn't show up on the task bar).

Thanks in advance!

right click on the desktop and do properties.

If you don't see the display properties window, then type Alt+Space and then hit the M key.  Use your arrow keys to move the display properties from the non-existent monitor over to the one that is working.  You can set all of your display properties from there and get things back up on the first screen.

vishal impact - I'm not trying to turn on the 2nd monitor (I don't have it atm) - I'm just trying to move hidden windows that are 'displayed' where the 2nd monitor would be.

Jared's solution worked. Thanks man :)
