Finding WMP in a Two Screen System

I have a laptop that I use for presentations with a projector. I set up
a PC screen/display that's visible on the projection screen with
whatever is showing on WMP. If I happen to turn off the projector and
turn off the PC, how do I gain access to WMP to manipulate it into the
single normal laptop screen? Will killing it and then firing it up again
do it? I get the impression it won't from experience with another
machine with two screens/displays and no projector use.

Right click on the taskbar icon for WMP and select Move. Then you can use
the arrow keys to move it. You may have to select Restore first if it is in
full screen mode.

By taskbar you mean the icons along the bottom of the screen, Start, or
something else? I'm not sure how I can move something I cannot see.
Where is Restore? It would seem using right/left arrows might take a
long time to move it.

Strange. I don't even see WMP in my Start->All Prog menu. OK, I dug it
out of Program Files, and made an entry on All Programs. Usually, it
just gets fired up when I click on a wmp file. I'm doing this on my
desktop--for the experience.

When you launch WMP, A rectangular button will show up somewhere to the
right of the Start button. That is the button you need to right click. You
will see 6 choices: Restore, Move, Size, Minimize, Maximize, and Close. If
Move is not greyed out, select Restore, then right click again and select
move. Then, without hitting anything else, use your arrow keys to move the
hidden window into the visible work area.

As an alternative, you could also go into the display properties and disable
the missing monitor. This "should" automatically move any open windows onto
the default monitor.
