RE: Urgent! Layer box under Start Bar!
Don't panic.

"Edit/Preferences" -> "Window management" and click the button "Reset saved window positions to defaults values". But this may reset all your windows. If you want to be more specific: exit Gimp, go to your Gimp profile, and edit the "sessionrc" file, and find "gimp-layer-list" and change its position to something more sensible (for instance something close to the Toolbox). Save the file and restart Gimp, the window should no appear on screen.

If you get lost in the operations above, you can also bluntly erase the sessionrc file, Gimp will recreate one.

You should "dock" these dialogs anyway.

There is another method using... Windows. Even if you can't see it, you can select this window (Alt-Tab) and then move it:
- strike Alt-space to open the window menu (the one you get by clicking on the window icon at the left of the title bar)
- strike 'm' (in the English version, for other language, do the same on a visible window, and check the underscored letter in the "move" menu entry)
- use the keyboard direction keys to move the window.

You can train yourself on a visible window first.

And fix your keyboard, your uppercase key sticks.
