At least, that's how it works in Illustrator 10 for Windows...
Of course, after I posted I re-read your post and see that the menu option is not working. Did you accidentally drag the palette off-screen?
Every single other palette is visible; the character palette is marked as visible in the drop-down. None of the menu options brings it back, or Ctrl-t. I am also using V10 for Windows.
Man, this makes me mad! I guess I will re-install and loose all my custom plug-ins and setup I have been using for two years. Crap.
If you do end up re-installing, you could always try making a copy of your Illustrator Plug-ins folder
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Illustrator 10\Plug-ins
so that you don't lose all your plug-ins (assuming you are keeping them in the same folder). I've never tried it but if you're already re-installing what do you have to lose.
Good luck and let us know if you fix this.
Select File>Open... or some other dialog box that appears off-screen.
Hit the alt key.
Press the enter key.
You should now see a menu with Move as one of the options.
Hit enter again and then move your mouse. The window should now be attached to your mouse and you can move it back on screen.
