look at .xfce4/xfce4rc. You'll need to edit it when the panel is not running
because the panel overwrites the file when it saves it's settings when it shuts

Panel Properties -> Popup Position -> Top. 

It's a single setting for all popups. It'd be easier to set it with the
preferences dialog than to edit the XML.
