Find visible offscreen figures




findfigs finds all visible figure windows whose display area is off the screen and positions them on the screen.

A window appears to the MATLAB® software to be offscreen when its display area (the area not covered by the window's title bar, menu bar, and toolbar) does not appear on the screen.

This function is useful when you are bringing an application from a larger monitor to a smaller one (or one with lower resolution). Windows visible on the larger monitor may appear offscreen on a smaller monitor. Using findfigs ensures that all windows appear on the screen.
