Hi
I am using a Netbook with 1024 x 600 screen

I am trying to Export a Gimp File in JPG

The Export Dialogue Window pops up OK but is not all visible on the screen . I cannot get at any of the buttons or the top of the Window to exit . I want to be able to move the window to a better location

I believe there are Keyboard shortcuts in xfce  but have had no luck getting any to work . Do they need installing or should they work out of the box . what shortcuts do I need to use

Hi Colin,
Press and hold alt key and then drag the window with your left mouse button.
You can click and drag anywhere on the window while holding alt key.

Hello

Thanks for your solution - Not sure why it happened but I tried to reset it by exiting  and starting again but the Open File dialogue window was in the wrong place .

Adding to above for your future reference:  along top of Gimp (or any other GUI program) you'll notice that one of the letters in each category is underlined.  eg. File, Edit, ....  So, key combo would be <Alt>+<F> (lowercase) for File menu; <Alt>+<E> for Edit menu, and so on.

There is another solution Colin.
You could setup a  a virtual screen that's bigger than your physical screen.
It's like having a zoomed in screen, and you move it when your mouse touch the screen edge.
