Try to open design layouts... Nothing opens

I just moved my database to a brand new computer I am using windows 7 and premium 2012... 14.1.108.0

when I try to open design layouts the computer just sits there an looks at me... No response... Like I did not even click it... Any Ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks

Hello Brian,
The layout designer opens in a new window. Check to see if it is minimized, or check the Application tab under your Windows Task Manager for "Layout Designer - Application Layout". If it is listed in the task manager, you can right-click on it on choose "Bring to front" or "Maximize"

It is not opening anything just no response... I already did that. I can get it to open by adding a a new field then it asks if i want to update layouts... click yes it opens like normal...

Is Windows user acces control on?  Try turning that off if it is.

I am having the exact same issue.  Is there any solution for this?
