Dual Monitor is gone, can't get my window back!


How do I get my component editor off the dual screen? I only have one monitor connected and don't have another to connect up so I can grab it.

This is so ridiculous.

I do not want to reset my maya settings for something this stupid.

are you using windows 7? try this and see if it will work

Quote: Windows key+shift+left/right arrows

“But I don’t need Snap,” you might be saying, “because I’ve got dual monitors!” If that’s the case, the shortcut for you is Windows key+shift+left/right arrows — just a slight modification of the Snap method. Using this combination will full-screen the current window into the left or right monitor. It’s a nice way to to push an item out of the way, but still have it visible when you need to refer to it.

if the left or right arrows don't work try the left / right arrows on the numpad

Ah that did it, thank you!

And since that was the first I tried I didn't need to try other two

alt + space and choosing maximize also fixes these kind of problems..everytime

That will require the window to be active (selected). How can i do that if it's sitting on the other invisible monitor unselected? Im curious to know. Thx
