Hi Bubba,

Welcome to the Forum.

Assuming you can still see part of Google Chrome browser window, albeit its off centre, do the following:
  • Open the Google Chrome browser
  • Now press Alt + Spacebar keys together, then with mouse select Move from the menu that appears
  • Now tap your left or right Arrow key to move the browser to a position you like.
    • i.e. If browser is off to right then tap the left Arrow key to bring it back to the left, or
    • If browser is off to the left then tap the right Arrow key to bring it back to the right
    • Likewise, you can tap the up/down Arrow keys to move it up or down.
  • When you have positioned the browser where you want it, close the browser. This allows it to set its current position, so it opens there the next time you use it.
Now when you open it again, it ought to be in the position you moved it to.​

I tried this and chrome completely froze up. I could not do anything including exit. I fortunately had another browser open and was able to access that and close everything down. So, now what?

Bubba,

Some of us older users need to be told to press Alt, and the + sign, and the spacebar. I have Win7 where the problem arose but the Win10 fix worked for me.
