Go to full screen mode and make a minor edit to the presentation. Exit full screen mode. Attempt to close Powerpoint and it will move the smaller window into view upon asking if you want to save. Then, slide it where you would prefer it open next time, click "don't save." Re-open Powerpoint. Worked for me!
