Windows 7: Outlook 2010 main screen will not minimize

Outlook 2010 main screen will not minimize

Can anyone help? I'm not actually sure if this is a problem with Outlook of Windows 7.

From yesterday I've discovered that new windows will not open in front of my Outlook main screen. So for example, if I click to write a new email, the icon appears at the bottom on my task bar but not in front of me on my screen. I have to minimise the Outlook main screen to see the email entry screen. This is also the case for other programs too -- explorer, chrome, powerpoint. The main Outlook screen seems to be the predominant one and windows will not open in front of it. Very annoying as now every time I have to minimise it, adding a new click every time I do a new task!

I suspect some setting in either Windows or Outlook has been changed to have this effect. It happened after I installed the Salesforce.com plug in for Outlook so that I can sync between Outlook and Salesforce.com. I don't want to uninstall it as it's very useful.

Hope someone can help?
