After upgrading to, the main window was drug so that the top part was no longer visible.I would expect to be able to grab either the top bar, or a corner, or click the X to close the app but nothing that I can think of has been helpful.

I've included a link to a screen cap of the issue. the capture begin at the top of the visible screen.

Did you know that you can move any window with the keyboard?

Hit Alt+Space, use cursor keys to highlight "Move", then hit enter. Use the cursor keys to move the window around. Press enter when you're done.
Resizing a window is similar, choose "Size", hit the cursor key that corresponds to the window edge you want to resize, then use the cursor keys to move the selected edge.

This worked in Windows 3.1 already and still works in Vista.

Alternatively, if you're lazy, hold down Ctrl+Alt+Shift while you start FileZilla, that'll reset all sizes. That's FileZilla specific though.

Thanks for looking at it. I really didn't know if it was a bug in filezilla or not. Ya, knew you can move things with the keyboard but the dual displays are at different resolutions and it seemed that the allow of the window move was based on the secondary screen and not the window it was in. Again, I wasn't sure if filezilla was given bad info or just picked the wrong display.

Thanks again :)
