Mids won't open visibly, even after reinstall.

Earlier today I was having problems with my mouse and I'm sure that I did things that I didn't want to do.  Mids was running fine at the time.  However, after a reboot, I can not get Mids to function.  It opens with its normal splash screen, but no application window appears.  I can open a second non-visible window.  Neither one will show up.

 

So I went to midsreborn.com and got the latest version (which I'm sure I was already running).  I reinstalled, choosing the "fix existing installation" option.  That seemed to operate succesfully, but, still, no Mids window will become visible.

 

I uninstalled Mids, rebooted, and reinstalled it.  Nothing changed.  It still goes thru the motions of starting up, but no actual window appears.  I believe this might be a case of the dreaded 1x1 application window stuck in the upper left portion of the screen, with no way to enlarge it or move it.  When that has happened with a browser window, rebooting the machine fixes the problem.  Not with Mids, though.  Whatever the problem is survives a disinstall, reboot, and reinstall process.

 

Does anyone have any idea how to get my Mids working again?

Never mind.  I was able to use the application taskbar icon to maximize Mids to full screen, then unmaximize.  It disappeared.  But the next time I started it, a normal, visible, resizable window appeared.

Big thanks to @cohRock for coming back to post the solution. The exact same thing happened to me. After reading this, I realized that that Mids is opening outside the visible screen. Maximizing it caused it to show, but then unmax made it disappear again. I used the move command to bring it back into view and voila, issue resolved.

For those like me who didn't know how to maximize a window from the task manager, pressing Control+Shift while right-clicking the icon in the task bar does the trick.

Just Quoting this because I just had exactly the same problem.

A fix for this has already been implemented as a temporary release and is available on our Discord.

Thank You I was having trouble figuring that out. I consider myself computer savy to some extent but sometimes the little things can mess with me.

Yep.  The "Have you tried turning it off, then back on again?" trick can fix a lot of stupid little problems.

If it's stupid, but it works...
