Affinity Publisher shows in my task bar but not my screen

Recommended Posts

Hi,  I have uninstalled and reinstalled my affinity publisher a few times with the same results, when I open the program it will show on my task bar but not my screen. When I hold my cursor over the task bar icon it show the program and what I am trying to view on screen, I click on this but it will not show on my screen.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums, @Charms63.

What OS do you use?

It's possible that the application window is off-screen. For example, if you sometimes use multiple screens, but currently don't have the screen you last used Publisher on attached to your computer, maybe you need to plug in that other screen.

But sometimes I've seen Windows just put an application off the screen, and there are tricks for moving it back. I think the same could happen with macOS, but the tricks are probably different there.

Alternatively, you could close the application, the restarting it while you have the Ctrl key pressed. Keep it pressed until you get the Clear User Data dialog, then leave the first three items checked and click Clear.
