In reply to Comment 49 (Fabio Alemagna):
>I'f it's completely out of the screen, then you cannot manually put it inside the screen, but this is something that can happen only if the programmer decided it to happen, therefore I don't see the problem.
Well, you sort of missed my point. The programmer may have developed on a 1900 wide screen and your running in a 800 wide, but he places his windows to open at specific coordinates rather than an offset from upper left. Or, someone menus up to window/snapshot/all then archives the directory. You unarchive it, click the drawer open and find the window resides outside your current screen dimentions. What if the window opens at the very left but is SO wide that you can't click on the sizeing gadget or snap gadget? Without this feature, the window will always open within the screen, even if it's resized down and you have to scroll over to see some icons. Thats what the scroll bars were made for anyway. Still, i expect there will be a window manager of sorts so you can pop windows back into the viewport. However, i would still prefer to live with this option switched off just so i don't have to go through the extra hassle of bringing windows back into the screen and re-snapshoting them.
