How to reopen a minimized window?

Post by VAastro » 12 Mar 2019, 16:04

I have AA6

When I minimize a script, telescope, filter. etc. window within AA6 it disappears.
What can I do to get the window to reappear?

Thanks

They should minimize to the lower left screen corner just above the tray!

I think I found a bug in AA7:

If I start AA7, then start the Star Atlas and minimize it, the Star Atlas will disappear from AA7 and cannot be made visible until AA7 is closed and restarted.

It looks like it's the same issue, maybe a new Windows 10 upgrade behaviour? Usually minimized windows are placed in the bottom-left area of the desktop: For the moment I suggest to don't minimize the Atlas window, instead just close it: doing so there is no difference nor performance penalties (the current chart will be kept in memory).

Actually, any of the windows you minimize in AA7 disappear in Windows 10 - not just the Star Atlas. I've been leaving them open and just shuffling them around which makes it difficult to view the main window.

Try enabling "auto hide taskbar" in the Win10 taskbar settings. I haven't noticed anything else disappearing but sometimes the taskbar can cover the bottom of the AA7 window.

I tried that- no difference. All minimized windows still disappear.

You mean the camera control windows and image windows?

I didn't notice that from Feb 24-March 10 and I was using two machines running two mounts for two weeks...in fact, now that I think about it, I had no problem with the Star Atlas then either and I was constantly minimizing it after finding a target. It is only now that I am processing my data that I ran across the Star Atlas problem.

I wonder if the latest Win10 upgrade broke something?

Same here, but I have no problems except the Star Atlas.
