This has happened before with a few things, but usually only temporarily, however with a program I've recently downloaded there seems no way to see the full GUI at all. I've been looking for cross platform video editors and have been trying kdenlive, openshot and handbrake. I've tried them on my linux system and am now looking at them on my windows 8.1 system too. Handbrake (does anyone know if the GUI is metro style on windows 8.1 with weird white bits covering over with options, totally unlike the linux GUI for it) has a GUI too big for my screen*. I want to look at the lower parts of the GUI but it is too tall. If I try "alt"+"space" and then pick "move" and use the arrow keys I can get the window to go where I want it, with the top of the GUI disappearing of the top of my screen and the bottom of the GUI now reachable. But then when I hit enter to "put the window down" in this new location it snaps back to having the top of the window at the top of my screen, so the bottom is inaccessible. What can I do about this, it is bad when it happens with avast's updater but for once a month things I can temporarily switch to the small mode for display in control panel, but for a program I'm trying to test and get to know I don't want to be having to change screen resolution like that, I need to be able to get windows to go off the top of my screen. Thanks
*I have to set the "medium" 125% option for window 8.1's size in "control panel-->display" as it's too small to comfortably read otherwise.
