so, if I got you right, notepad starts, but you can't see the window, because it is outside the monitor / desktop? Tryy the following (maybe first with a program window you see on the desktop): activate the program by clicking on it's tasbar icon, press the alt + space key. That should activate the program window menu. press the cursor down key now, followed by an enter. The courser changes and you can move the window now with the courser keys.
