    Hi! I have an issue that seems to happen only with one particular program and I can't figure out how to fix it. When I run it, nothing happens on screen. In the Task Manager it shows that it's running as a background process rather than an App which is how it usually displays, and I can still hear sounds from the program so it's definitely there... I just don't see it on my screen and there's no icon in the taskbar. It's not offscreen and I have fully updated my drivers and the program itself and rebooted my PC. I'm out of ideas! Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi clairemarie84, and welcome to TSG.

    It might help someone here to help you if you told us the name of the program and any related version number. How are you confirming it is not running off screen?
