Thank you Kostas, that fixed it. 

There were already some number settings there that I assumed sent the window 
into outer space. I replaced them with 0 (zeros) as you instructed. When I 
opened DX4WIN my IOTA window was in the upper left corner (the result of the 
zero settings). I was able to click and move it where I want it and all is FB.

I will definitely keep your email in my DX4WIN info folder in case it ever 
happens to another window. I did search the help files and opened the DOC: User 
Manual but could not find this info. 

Yours was the only response to my request. I could not figure this one out on 
my own but now I understand the process on how the windows remember where they 
are supposed to be positioned.

BTW you are in my log in 2005 and again 2010, and maybe as an OP from EP6T in

Backup everything in case something goes bad.

Go to window>iota. I suppose it is checked. Click on it and press 
Alt+F4. This will close it.

Close dx4win

In dx4win>save directory find config.txt

Open it with notepad and search for [W-IOTA]

You will see something like this below


but with different numbers




Save the config file, open the dx4win and go to preferences. Load the just 
saved config file and open iota window.

It should appear somewhere on the left top of the screen
