Studio 15 & Windows 10 Problems

I just installed Studio 15 in a new HP Envy laptop with Windows 10. Everything worked fine in the old PC with Windows 7, now Studio 15 is wobbly at best (it will only work in full screen mode, meaning I can't have another application open on my screen, side by side with Studio 15.)

Next problem, I am trying to change project settings to no avail, the taskbar shows a second Studio screen (Project Settings), but switching to that screen not only shows the same project screen (not the settings screen) but makes it unresponsive to any mouse clicks. I can't even close it unless I do it directly on Windows taskbar.

I am beginning to think that I wasted $165 on an upgrade that requires ancient versions of Windows to work properly.

Any ideas?

Check your screen view settings? Jul 22, 2016

My understanding is that Studio 15 works just fine with Win10, and I rather suspect that this is a hardware-related issue I'm familiar with from my own notebook (ThinkPad), even though I'm using Win7 rather than Win10. Sometimes, if I've been using full-size screens connected to my docking station and then remove the notebook, I forget to change the screen settings to a single screen (normally F7), so the computer is still "projecting" things like settings windows, find and replace windows, etc. to a second (but non-existent) screen. Just like you, I can see these miniature windows in the taskbar, but I can't actually open them.

So I suggest you try playing around with your Windows screen settings and see what happens.
