Program opening off screen

Everytime I open AOL Instant Messanger it opens up off the screen, is there any way that I can get this program back where I can see it?

you need to supply more information about your problem !

for example, its important to know what GUI you are using.
if for example you are using KDE, then the answer is as simple as right clicking your desktop, selecting the windows sub-menu, then Cascade or Unclutter windows would work.

but if you are using GNOME, or iceWM or Windowmaker, or Afterstep or Nextstep or any of the other popular windows managers, then you wasted your time reading this post, cos i dont know
