    went to help a user who when she opened a word doc it would be displayed on the task bar but would not "open" on the srceen, no amount of clicking helped, tried all methods possible to open BTW, solve by right clicking and maximizing (this was cut from a PM so excuse the wording), anyone got any ideas how this happened??

    thanks in advance, please don't make this my 3d one thats not solved in the wonderous world of TSG

    Hey Jimi,

    Was the box for the minimized document blinking or flashing, while sitting in the taskbar?
    Also, if the client was clicking on a shortcut, then under the shortcut properties, was it set to run minimized?

    Sorry Jimi, :(

    Guess we'll have to file it under "Unsolved Mysteries".
