Hi all. Hope everyone is being safe!

I changed one of my two display monitors today and since that time when I press BREAK to launch FARR I hear the audible clue that it's launched, and if I type in a known app name and hit enter it does launch that app (so I know FARR is active), but I cannot see the FARR UI. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling (thinking any setting re: last position of the FARR window would be cleared), but that did not work.

Appreciate any thoughts / solutions you might have.

TIA

I get the same sort of thing on a new laptop, but it only seems to occur when trying to display FARR after FARR startup, when using the hotkey.
If I double-click the FARR Systray icon to bring up FARR, it brings up FARR OK. After that, it works OK with the hotkey.
It looks like the FARR display is somehow being inhibited from coming On Top.

Maybe it is the same issue as http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=49502.0 ?
