    Not showing word (Word 95)

    Hello, I'm working on a friends computer, Win95 on Word 95. I clicked on the Word icon to open the appl., it shows me the initial screen "Word 95", puts a button into the taskbar BUT I don't see it on the screen. I closed it several times and reopened it, shut down my computer and restarted, still NO Word except for the button on the taskbar. Does anyone have any idea what's going on???? I've never seen this happening. I printed a document from the win explorer which worked find. Other appls. work just fine, it's only word. Please help. Thanks, Tira

    It might be "hidden" out of the screen area.

    Right click on the icon on the task bar and select Maximize. If Word becomes visible, then being restored out of the screen area is the problem.

    Now, to move it back to being visible when it is restored, Restore it to a non-maximized window, click the Restore button on the title bar.

    Right Click the Taskbar icon again, but this time select Move. Your pointer will change to a double arrow and probably jum across the screen. Just Click and hold the Left mouse button and start dragging to the middle of the screen.

    An alternative method of restoring a window from off the screen is to remove most other windows from the screen, then right click an unused part of the taskbar and choose Cascade Windows.

    THANKS for your help. I can't believe I didn't try this, dugh...It just never occured to me that it wouldn't come back once it was minimized. Thanks again, Tira
