Also, pressing Alt Tab may maximise them.
Hope this helps.
When I minimize a window it should go to the taskbar. It used to, but now it disappears behind the taskbar. To find it I have to close all windows. How do I make it go to the taskbar? I am using Windows 98 SE.
I don't know if this is what I need-this site fixes XP, I am using 98SE. Will it fix my problem? I'll explain it better-when I minimize a window it goes to the lower left on the desktop but it is behind any open windows. To maximize the windows I have to minimize all windows to find them. Minimized windows should go to the taskbar and be easily seen.
I wouldn't expect this registry tweak would matter. I would also try #298. After clicking on #298 you'll have to click on "Minimized Programs Missing". Just be sure to create a System Restore Point or other reliable backup before appling them or any other registry tweak in case it doesn't work out.
Meanwhile you may be able to navigate from one minimized page to another using a keyboard shortcut. While holding down the Alt key tap on the Tab key to navigate from window to window. When you release the Alt key the selected window will open. Sometimes this is easier and faster than bothering with the mouse.
Hope this helps.
with Windows ME. Mine just totally disappear. Just started yesterday when I thought I had accidentally closed the windows but instead had several open but just couldn't see them. To close them I had to use Ctrl/Alt/Del and close them one at a time. I found a thread similar to this but it concerned Windows XP. I ran Housecall which found some adware but couldn't remove it totally. I have McAfee AV and keep it updated. This is really aggravating so any suggestions would be appreciated.....thanks!
Loos, Did you by chance recently open a e-mail greeting card? There's an old virus "W32.Friendgreet.worm" which used to cause this problem.
if so, there may be no room on the taskbar for the active program list.
right click the taskbar. if it is locked, unlock it.
try the following: drag the top edge of the taskbar to double its height. do you see your active programs? if so, resize or remove your other taskbars and then resize the taskbar back to normal.
finally. No I don't use lots of toolbars and I haven't opened a greeting card so~~~I ran Ad-aware, Spybot and Stinger this morning before I went to work and found some spyware/malware. Deleted that stuff and ran a virus scan which found nothing. Shut down my computer and planned on doing a system restore when I got home but when I turned computer on everything is working fine. Is it a miracle?~~~OR could spyware cause that to happen? Whatever it was, it's gone for the time being. Thanks a lot for all the input! I really appreciate it! Loos
