Hi Jeff,
if you have at least a part of the program window on the screen move it back 
with the mouse to the position you want. Then close the program from the 
menu "File", "Quit". That will save the last screen position. Closing the 
program with the "x" control will not.

If the window is completely off the screen, change the two first entries in 
the text file "SatPos.SQF" in the SatPC32 DATA folder, for example set both 
values to 0. The window will then be positioned in the uppler left corner of 
the screen.

The data folder is hidden by default. So, make all files and folders visible 
(Explorer- Tools - Folder Options - View). The path of the folder depends on 
the OS, under XP it is C:\Documents and Settings\Username \AppData\SatPC32, 
under Vista and Windows 7 it is C:\User\Username\AppData\Roaming\SatPC32.

73s, Erich, DK1TB
