Calibre e-book viewer contents display [issue][help]

Hi, I have an issue with the ebook viewer on my local installation where the contents page renders at the top left of the primary display and cannot be moved. (please see the attached image)

I am not sure if this was caused by a change in the settings as I have been unable to find one or make any changes to the way it is being displayed. I am also not sure if I've made any changes to the settings that might be causing this. The only changes made to the installation is the updates (I'm currently on v3.37 x64)

Installing Calibre on another computer using the same installer does not cause the same behavior on the table of contents in the viewer - it is displayed in a window that can be independently moved and closed.

Kindly help me get the table of contents back to normal on my ebook viewer. Thanks very much in advance

That floating TOC panel has a title header labeled 'Table of Contents' - just double-click it and it should go back to its default position.

Was that the full screen? There should be that titlebar that Jackie mentioned.
Double clicking docks it. But you might like the Floated version like I do.

It seems it some how got convinced to Be a full screen (height), which anchors in the corner

If you can't get to the titlebar (now missing a Top monitor)

set the focus to the TOC pane . Use Alt-<space> Move , then the arrow keys to move the titlebar into view

Thumbs up 'Alt+Space' to move title into focus did the trick!

Thanks, jackie_w : I guess the main issue I faced was moving the ToC around. I was unable to move it when I moved the e-book viewer to another window. (The window's titlebar was rendered out of the plane of view).

Thanks, theducks : I was able to move the floating ToC window using the 'Alt+Space' trick. I like the floated version as well, but I was unable to get it out of the way when I wanted to use that monitor to display another window (dual-monitor setup) and view the ebook on the secondary display.

I am now able to move the ToC window around. I also did not know about the double-click-to-dock-the-ToC trick. I think it will come in useful when I read with the viewer maximized. Thanks very much for the super-prompt help
