FSX doesn't open on minimize window

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I am having this trouble since today. I always fly on window mode and I always minimize the FSX when I want to do other things, but today something got crazy on my FSX because I minimize the FSX window and I cannot open it again

 

Regards

 

Ivan

A known bug.  You can try to use Alt+Tab a few times to try to bring the FSX Window back up but sometimes it won't happen.  I've been successful doing that a few times in the past but it is very difficult.  Best to just Alt+Enter to go from Full Screen to Windowed Mode, do your other things, then come back to the open Windowed Mode and continue your session.

 

Best regards,

Another way that can work is make FSX active in the taskbar then Windows Key + Up Arrow.
