Moving FS2Crew window

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is a Windows problem or a FS2Crew or FSX problem.  After working successfully for several years, suddenly when I drag an FS2Crew window to my 2nd monitor the window moves but the content is replaced by a black screen within a few seconds.  Occasionally the content will appear after a couple minutes but not often.  I like to keep my sim screen uncluttered and the windows such as FS2Crew, Radar Contact etc. on my second monitor.

 

Would appreciate any help.

No.  Just dragging it as I've done for years... I must have done something but I don't know what.

You're right... don't know why I leave the window open all the time.  I'll try that.  I'll also update my video drivers.

 

Thanks, Brian

How do I close the FS2Crew window?  Hitting the same key I use to start it doesn't work.  "X"ing it out doesn't work. Probably a dumb question, right?  Sorry, Bryan.

There's no such thing as a dumb question  :wink:

 

Press the "LK" (Lock) button on the FS2Crew Main Panel.

 

 

The reason for the Lock button is because if you change views in FSX/P3D, any 2D panel windows will auto close.  Locking them forces them open.

 

Cheers,
