Windows 7: Files/ Folders Wont Open??

Files/ Folders Wont Open??

When I click on my documents or my computer, anything having to do with a personal folder, the icon in the taskbar will show up as if it was open but the actual window will not open. Even when the icon appears that's also when the window would normally appear but i doesn't. If I hover over the icon it will display the little window preview but the window itself will not open at all.

Please help because I can not access anything in my computer.

Point to the icon on the taskbar, then the preview icon for the window.

Click the right mouse button and select move.

Try using the left and right arrows keys to see if you can move the window back into the visible area of the Desktop.

WOW!! It worked. So I think the problems that I have "extend displays" since I have my laptop wired via hdmi to my tv so somehow the setting got messed up.

Thank you very much Ztruker!
