WF Pro eats my screen

Hello,
Is it something only I have when using WF Pro?
When it is running nothing gets displayed on the screen, it covers any other software windows running on the same screen. Luckily I use two displays, yet it cannot be always worked around, so it's rather nasty when I either have to cancel a running process (that prevents me from minimizing the WF Pro window) or wait until it ends.
It happens sometimes and is just one of the unpredictable ways WF Pro works on my computer.
Win 7 hp
WF Pro 3
Does it happen to any other users?
Best regards,
Krzysztof

WFP hides your Windows taskbar Jul 17, 2012

WFP hides your Windows taskbar, and it shouldn't, but you can always switch to your desktop or other applications by hitting the Windows button or with Alt+Tab.

Cheers,
Gerard

Thank you Gerard.
I feel as if the fundamentals of my computer literacy has been shaken by being absorbed with work using WF Pro. It is not always very practical to do this way (especially when I use 15 apps at a time).
Still, Pro behaves weird, it's sluggish and takes a lot of effort to use it. Click is not enough, click, wait and click and click until something happens.
Files take a long time to load and large files won't load at all.
I'm using it on a fairly new machine with i3, 4GB RAM, Win 7 hp 64-bit
Best regards,
Krzysztof
