    The edit window in pro-tools extends beyond my actual screen size. How do I bring it back to where I can See it??

    Assuming the obvious way is unavailable because the header of the window is out of range and there's no where to grab it. (BTW- I don't know why apple changed this. there used to be a frame around the entire window that was grab-able)
    Anyway,- this sometimes happens if you change the screen resolution while PT is running. Usuallly restarting the computer will resize everything happily, or at least it will move the header of the window into view so that you can move it around to bring the resize corner into view.

    wow, in that case, you're right- it is the Dumbest problem ever.
    I always assume that people post questions because the normal accepted procedure didn't work and using the search function didn't produce any results.
    But yeah and for future reference:
    Red button - closes
    Yellow button - sends to the Dock
    Green Button - toggles current view/fits window to screen.
    These are all very well documented controls.

    I liked the more technical answer with the restart.
