ACT 10 interface is AWOL!

I can't see the ACT inferface on my computer screen! This happened suddenly just today. I can see the "Alarm" window it pops up. I have tried changing the screen resolution, unplugging my second monitor, rebooting the computer and ACt with no luck.

 

I'm running ACT 10 on Windows 7, using a Samsung Notebook (small screen) and a Benq 21" monitor.

 

Any suggestions would be great, I can't earn my living without using this program.

It sounds like the ACT! window is now opening 'off-screen'.  Here is an article from Microsoft with commands for bringing 'off-screen' windows back in view: Off-Screen Window

Re: ACT 10 interface is AWOL!

This MSoft posting got me started. I tried the key command with the arrow keys, not much happened.

 However with some patience and "Alt + Tabbing" to select ACT as the current program AND THEN using the ALT + Spacebar I was able to get the old Minimize, Maximize, Restore menu and used that to get the thing back on screen.

 

Hope this helps anyone else out there.
