    Avid Media Composer 2019.6 won't restore from being minimized

    Whenever I minimize Media Composer 2019.6 I can't get it back and literally have to use the task manager to crash out and restart.  I'm using Windows 10 Pro on a dual monitor setup.  I can see the right screen (which never does get minimized) but for the bloody life of me, the rest of it won't come back. OMG how crap is this...I just use the "show desktop" function as a workaround which works, but OMG don't use minimize!  Anyone else?

    Are you Right-Clicking on the minimized MC window ? I had the same issue, but it went away after I chose Media Composer, bear bottom of the “Recent” list. HTH

    Yeah, right clicking on that and choosing MC or any of the bins doesn't work for me.  (I have MC pinned to the taskbar.)  Neither does choosing "switch to" in the task manager.  If I right click on the icon in the task bar and the hover over the image of MC that appears (the right window only) it will bring the left window back up but as soon as I come off of that image or click on the laft window if goes away again.  Definitely messed up.   Again, thanks for your response!

    I am using a 1 monitor system, so I may be immune, for now. Just CURIOUS: Are your Customized Workspaces Floating or Panelled or each a combo ? Also: are you able to use Restore on one of your Default Workspaces to determine if minimizing from there also “sticks”? And also: are you using the workspace sidebar or have it in “Hide” ?

    Re: Avid Media Composer 2019.6 won't restore from being minimized

    The workspaces are mostly panelled.  One has a floater.  They're really just the defaults but with extra tools added to them and with timeline views linked etc.  No I'm not able to restore (from minimized) a default workspace.  I am using the workspace sidebar in icons only mode.

    Thanks for the details. Good luck. What about testing as a 1-monitor system? I think you need help from tech support.

    Re: Avid Media Composer 2019.6 won't restore from being minimized

    I have the same issue. When I minimize the main window... anything panelled on the right monitor stays, but the HOME program window is gone. I cant access the top menus (FILE, EDIT, Ect) and have not found a way to get them back without crashing out and restarting.

    I can confirm the same issue here with a 2 monitor setup. Main monitor comes back, left monitor (where the control menu's are) wont come back.

    Re: Avid Media Composer 2019.6 won't restore from being minimized

    This is a problem I had until I made the windows task bar appear all the time. Previously I had it hidden and the app would minimize itself into a little bar that would get hidden behind the taskbar. Don't know if you have the task bar hidden or if its up permanently. But after playing around with this and tweaking the host panel to have them BOTH active (but my left one primary) - at least it reactivates when minimized. Still only get one monitor to minimize though

    Re: Avid Media Composer 2019.6 won't restore from being minimized

    Thanks for this ramz434, this helped! I don't have my taskbar setup to minimize - it's there all the time and both windows are also active under host panel.  And I can't click on the icon on the task bar to restore after minimizing  BUT (thanks to your attached picture) if I double click on that little Avid Media Composer Moj... window it comes back up.  Cool...but not how it's supposed to work I'm sure.

    Thanks - much appreciated!

    Re: Avid Media Composer 2019.6 won't restore from being minimized

    I can confirm the behavior as described. Most annoying is that the panel on the secondary monitor doesn't minimize.

    Re: Avid Media Composer 2019.6 won't restore from being minimized

    I can also confrim the same problem - cannot minimize.  Like someone else said I have to go into the task manager to get MC back.  Will look into some the fixes others have said, but I think this is a bug.
