FSX starts minimized

Recommended Posts

...and there is no way to maximize it

tried alt+tab, clicking the icon in the taskbar, "bring to front" from the task manager...nothing works.

this happened suddenly after installing Visual Studio 2010.

 

Any other idea?

 

PS: deleting fsx.cfg helps but would like to avoid it

 

Thank you.

Make sure you have Microsoft Visual 2005 w/SP1.  FSX needs 2005 w/SP1 to run properly.  You can get a link to the various versions by looking in the AVSIM CTD Guide located to the right of this forum under Hot Spots.  I've never seen a way to maximize FSX once the icon goes to the desktop but, when I get into that situation, I keep trying using Alt-Tab and suddenly it will be in full screen.  It's a bug.

 

Best regards,

Thank you all, the problem was my TV which is set as an extension of the main desktop, I turned it off and then the FSX screen popped up in the main monitor.

Not sure why this happened now as I never had such problem before.
