Can you please give me an example of the parameters I have to give the command winmove()? I'm very new to this...

For example do I just go winmove(0,0) or do I need to full in the other parameters?

WinMove

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Moves and/or resizes a window.

WinMove ( "title", "text", x, y [, width [, height[, speed]]] )

Parameters

title The title of the window to move/resize. See Title special definition.

text The text of the window to move/resize.

x X coordinate to move to.

y Y coordinate to move to.

width [optional] New width of the window.

height [optional] New height of the window.

speed [optional] the speed to move the windows in the range 1 (fastest) to 100 (slowest). If not defined the move is instantaneous.

Return Value

Success: Returns 1.

Failure: Returns 0 if window is not found.

Remarks

WinMove has no effect on minimized windows, but WinMove works on hidden windows.

If the width and height are small (or negative), the window will go no smaller than 112 x 27 pixels. If width and height are large, the window will go no larger than approximately [12+@DesktopWidth] x [12+@DesktopHeight] pixels.

Negative values are allowed for the x and y coordinates. In fact, you can move a window off screen; and if the window's program is one that remembers its last window position, the window will appear in the corner (but fully on-screen) the next time you launch the program.

If multiple windows match the criteria, the most recently active window is used.

If x and y equal to the Default keyword no move occurs, just resizing.

When speed is used the move is done with the new size.

WinMove("Name of Window", "", 0, 0) 
#cs
Change name of window to... the name of the window
The second parameter isn't necessary in most cases
First 0 is the X position
Second 0 is the Y position
#ce

EDIT: Chris95219 beat me
