    Windows 8

    FINALLY! I fixed it & it was such a simple fix. It seems when Windows explorer opens that particular window (& most likely others) it appears to always open the top of the window in the same place instead of trying to center it. All I did was resize it (made it smaller) so the bottom of the window was above the bottom of the screen. DUH!

    Thanks everyone for your help.
