Serial monitor keep hidden

Hi !
Since I'm on Windows 10, I can't open the Serial monitor in the Arduino IDE.

Actually, when I click on "Serial monitor" in top menu (or CTRL + MAJ + M), the window appear in the windows task bar, but I can't display it.

I tested on 1.6.3 and 1.6.5.

There is a screenshot:

Thanks for help !

Best regards.

Up ?

I had the same problem only on Windows 7. My solution was to hover over the window on the task bar, right click and maximize. Not sure how 10 will react.

I had the same problem with 1.6.7, also Windows 10.
I think it is due to the fact that I am constantly switching monitors and display settings.

I fixed it by going to Task View in the lower left corner, right-click the Serial Monitor and click 'snap left' or 'snap right'.

I don't know if this is what you are running into, but I have seen this sort of thing before where somehow the window got moved outside of the desktop and it tries to keep it there when you open it again (put it in the same place it was before). See if this addresses your problem (having been there before myself)

Bring misplaced window back on screen
