After selecting a single or multiple jpg or nef or dng images in Library module (both grid and loupe modes) clicking on the Metadata> Edit Capture Time... does not display the Edit Capture Time window! I have a single monitor and I have shrunk down LR from full screen to a window and can't find the Edit Capture Window anywhere. I can't click anywhere on the screen (menu options or other images) without producing an error tone. The only thing I can do is hit the escape key and then I can now do normal things in LR (except Edit Capture Time). Anyone experience this before or have any suggestions what to do?
 
Solution
Sounds like LR may have incorrectly recorded the previous location of that window as off screen. Try these exact steps:

1. Do Metadata > Edit Capture Time.

2. Type Alt + Space followed by Return (Enter).

3. Hit the left-arrow key a couple times.

4. Move the mouse pointer a little -- the Edit Capture Time window should snap to its location.

If that doesn't help, try resetting LR's preferences:

LR sometimes soils its preferences file, and resetting it can fix all sorts of wonky behavior (including bogus window locations). That article explains how to restore the old preferences if resetting doesn't help.

Johnrellis - I bow down to you sir - the first option you provided solved my problem and my 3 to 4 hour frustration - thank you, thank you, thank you.
