I have RDP running on my Win7Pro and am remoted onto an XP Pro.  With that RDP window up on my machine, I see an app I have running on the XP box I am remoted onto, but, the upper area of that app is up in an area I cannot reach and cannot scroll to.  I have had this problem before, but don't remember how to make the upper area grab-able again.

change your resolution.  The remote machine must have lower to fit so you won't have to scroll at all.

using the task bar > select focus on application > alt + space > m to move > use arrow keys to move the window

I wanted to verify that you're not experiencing a resolution issue?  You're able to see everything that you need on the desktop right?
