- New Window opens minimized -

All of a sudden every New Window which I open via
File > New > Window, opens minimized, at the center
of the screen and I have to double click the blue area
to entirely open it.

I tried to stretch the minimezed window enirely open
and then close it again, but the next time - no change.

Can I control it from some menu?

There's some malware that did that effect. Housecall seems to detect it.
