use the keyboard to alt-tab to it
and then use the keyboard to maximize it or minimize it or just alt-f4 and close it....

Two 'quick' options.
1) Plug the monitor that's currently connected to the PC back into the other port and move the video window over etc, then plug monitor back into the old port again.
2) Uninstall and then reinstall the application, it will reset back to the original monitor.

Another way....without uninstalling or plugging monitor in and out etc.

Push the 'Alt' key on your keyboard and then the 'Space Bar' key.
Push the 'Down Arrow' once and then push the 'Enter/Return' key.
You should now be able to use the Arrow keys to move the window over to where you can see it.

The plugging worked. THe problem was that the move wouldnt work because the computer thought no monitor was there and would allow the mouse to move off screen. By plugging in that second cable it fooled the computer and allowed me to get the mouse over there.

Thanks for all the help guys.
