When printing in ID, the print window places itself with the top 1/4 of the box off screen. All attempts to reposition have failed. Using Windows 10. All online fixes did not work. Suggestions?

Hello

Sounds frustrating. I don't know what online fixes you have tried so it's hard to not suggest something you may have tried already.

 

I don't know if you tried this but this works for me.

In your taskbar where the InDesign icon is when you have InDesign open and the Print Dialog box active.

Select InDesign icon by clicking on it once.

Hold down the Window Key and then use the Arrows to reposition the Print Dialog window.

At least under Windows, if a box is resizeable, grabbing any edge and resizing a bit will make the whole window pop down into full view. Doesn't work with the (fixed-size) Print dialog, though. Changing monitor setups is the usual cause of these problems in the first place...

 

A temporary hookup to a second monitor might allow it to be grabbed and moved.
