Act 2010 Main windows disappeared

My Act 2010's main window suddenly diappeared today.  I can only see the alarm windows and other dialog boxes.   I have tried rebooting the computer.  Office 2010 was installed couple days ago and not sure if it had anything to do with the problem.  Please help.

Do you see ACT! in the task bar?

Yes.  But when I click on the Act bar only the dialog box would come up.

Your ACT! window may just be outside of your screen. Take a look at this:

thanks for the tips.  I don't have dual monitor setup.  My current system is windows 7 and there is no dialog box like the one shown in the guide.

i figured it out.  in windows 7 you have to hover the preview pane above the task bar to see the "Maximize Windows."   Thanks for the link!   The comments below the guide helped.

Even if you don't have dual monitors, it could happen.

 

If you hover the ACT! button in the taskbar, do you get a preview of the ACT! window? If so, right-click the preview (not the button itself) and you'll get the Move menu item.
