Could you explain in a bit more detail what the problem is? I'm not sure I understand... perhaps a screenshot or something extra, too?

It's worth trying a *clean* restart of Explorer- type TSKILL EXPLORER into the Start/Search box and hit return?

Hi John, from your Problem Steps info it looks like the window has gone off-screen.

Open one instance of Explorer. Then whilst holding down the shift key, right click the Explorer taskbar icon and the System Menu should pop up. Next click on Move, and use the keyboard arrow keys/mouse to move the Window back to a suitable position on-screen.
