    Programs Running but stuck minimized


    So, this happened when I was playing games on steam. The game crashed and now my Steam is stuck minimized along with other randoms things, like I cant even open folders, well they open up but you can't see them I go to my taskbar to click and try to maximize them but it won't do anything. I've looked everywhere for help but I can't find any. Please HELP!

    There is one crazy possibility, that open window is positioned off the screen.

    The easiest way to get it back is to snap one open program to left or right side of screen and Windows will offer you to choose a running program to position it on the other half of the screen.

    If the missing application will show, just click on it and it will become visible.

    Worth a try...

    Click (left) on the title bar and move open window to the side.

    How to snap windows


    Another possibility is to press Windows key+P and see, if Windows try to show the application window on the secondary desktop.

    The Intel is the graphics card integrated into your Intel processor and the Nvidia is the discrete graphics card. So every modern Intel PC will have Intel graphics option. AMD processors will have AMD integrated graphics.
