    Dual screen, not seeing the whole of MC on one screen.

    Hi, I haven't used Media Composer for a while, but I opened up yesterday to do some editing and on my second monitor MC has moved up a bit so that I can't see the minimise and close buttons.  I can minimise the Composer and the Timeline, or whatever components are there according to my Workspace, but I can't move MC's main interface down so that I can see the very top of the UI.  I can adjust the lateral size of the UI. 

    Not a big issue of course, but could somebody please help with that?

    I'm using MC version 6 on Windows 7 Professional.

    Thank you.

    Try this:

    1. SHIFT+right-click on Media Composer in the Windows task bar at the bottom of the screen

    2. Select MOVE

    3. Use the keyboard arrow keys to move the main MC interface window down so you can see the top of the UI

    Can You see the edge of any other program maximized? If not it's a monitor issue, it can be fixed by fiddling with the monitor controls.

    Thank you both very much for the help, yes, the UI on both screens moved down so that the buttons on the right screen were visible. The UI on the right screen is just a little higher than on the left screen for some reason, but no matter, I'm able to collapse the application now.

    I appreciate the help 👌.
