Windows 10: My browsers are hidden Solved

    My browsers are hidden


    I'm not sure if this is even a Windows 10 problem. I've had this issue for a while, and I used to have to restart (or wait) to get it to resolve.

    When I try to open either IE or Chrome, the icons appear at the bottom of the screen and if I left-click it a small browser window is visible right above the icon, but it won't open normally. In the past I tried various combinations of the arrow keys and cntrl,alt, the windows button, etc. and once or twice I got it up there.

    The problem used to happen after I already had a browser open and then wasn't active for a while. Now, like I said, it's there from the get-go.

    Hello laurijst, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It sounds like they may be offscreen. If so, then you might see if you may be able to drag them back on screen using the method in the tutorial below.
