I am working with ArcGIS Map and using two computer screens. I use the second screen to see my attribute table clearly. But once I disconnect my main computer from the second screen and want to see the attribute table I am not able to see it. Even I restart the computer and try, it is opened somewhere. Again, when I connect my main computer with the second screen, I can see my attribute table there. It creates problem when I have to show my work to team on projector far from my second screen.

    Sometimes the very edge of the attribute table is visible. Look for it and drag it over. If you can get the window in focus using alt-tab, use the window + arrow keys to move it from off screen to on screen. – Ben S Nadler Mar 27 '18 at 15:20
  • I know what you mean but it did not work. I just tried for demo but i did not see the edge. I tried to use alt-tab but it showed me open windows but did not show the attribute table. Last time, I saw the edge but when I tried to click and drag it to the center, it usually disappear. Any other thoughts? – BPS Mar 27 '18 at 15:32
  • Do you have access to the registry? community.esri.com/thread/48713 – KHibma Mar 27 '18 at 16:43
  • have you tried windows short cut keys (Windows logo key + Shift + Left arrow or Right arrow) this can Move an app or window in the desktop from one monitor to another. I also suggest to move the attribute table to the main screen before disconnecting the second screen. – Ahmed Saad Mar 27 '18 at 16:55
  • @ Ahmed Saad: can you explain? – BPS Mar 27 '18 at 16:57

I have the same problem, top of attribute table outside screen. Esri's solution is to edit the registry. I have no admin-rights.

Solution: Go to your screen settings. Rotate your screen. You can now get to the top of the window and move it down. (The trick is to get a higher pixel count vertically. The attribute window is anchored to at fixed x,y coordinate outside the screen)


Go to : Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization \Connect to Projector

  • select "Computer only" .

It causes a 'refresh' action, and moves all open screens to the one screen.

If it doesn't do it immediately then try selecting one of the other options first before selecting the "Computer only" option.
