I have a Word document that I can't see the top of because it's
behind
the top menu bar. I cannot see the 3 horizontal "lights" to do
anything with it. There's no place I can grab to move it down.
This
may be an OSX problem, but it only occurs with Word - this happened
one other time until I deleted the file. I'd rather not do that.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Under the menu bar, or under one of Word's formatting bars? I don't
see how any document window slip under the menu bar unless something
is really going wonky with Word or OS X.

It can happen if someone with a different resoluation screen has opened
and saved the document, it happens here sometimes.

Luckily, it's a easy fix: go to the Window menu and select 'zoom
window', that will resize it to fit your acreen.
