Hello...

When I hit CTRL-F or I go to the Find menu, the corresponding tab shows up on my system tray in Windows but it does not appear on the screen. Trying to fix this by using Minimize or Size does not help either.

I am thinking that the following data is quite relevant: normally, I use Trados and my computer with two screens, my laptop screen and an external display. However, this week I am traveling and have only my laptop, no external screen. I imagine that Find was opening on the second screen and now it is not.

Does anyone have a clue as to how to solve this?

Thanks for any help.

Best,.
David

Windows monitor settings Dec 19, 2010

I've had that sort of problem when there's a power cut and I can only see my laptop screen and not the 2nd monitor.
Even restarting doesn't necessarily solve it.
What has worked sometimes is going to screen resolution (right click on your desktop) and making sure the screen is set to your laptop screen only. Try changing it to another setting and then returning to the one it should be on, clicking on "apply".

It's only an idea - but maybe it will work for you.

Have no idea whether it will work, but it might reposition the Search window as well...
