Window is open, appears in task manager and in window manager, but will not appear on desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Everything I can do that would suggest that one of my applications has a window open, but I cannot see it in any way on the desktop. Tried every trick, with task manager, altering resolutions to see if it is offscreen, etc. In task manager, switch to is lighter and unavailable.

    what the hell

  • What’s the name of your application? I suspect that your app needs some conditions to open its interface or have something wrong during running.

    Try the following:

    1.Run app as administrator

    2.create a new account and run app

    3.completely uninstall app and install it under compatibility mode, run again.

    Last but not least, refer to this link:

    Hold down SHIFT key and right click on a running program icon on the taskbar, a popup menu should appear, click on Move then use the Left/Right Arrow key to move it.

    Do the same for the rest of the running programs.

  • Thanks, did a little more research and found that on windows 10 pro it is actually alt+spacebar, not hold shift to pull up the options menu to move the window.
