This may sound vague, but there is no certain "type" of document. Right now my task bar is at the bottom of my screen. As I left click and then move the cursor from the icon on the bar up to the desktop, whatever I'm trying to open will flash open and then just as quickly close. There's no time to make the changes needed.
I've checked every setting I know, but nothing seems to help. Batteries in my wireless Logitech are fresh, contact points cleaned, and all tests I've come across have been run and have come up as "working properly".
Any ideas?? I feel it's a setting somewhere that was changed by mistake. I just don't know where to look.
Have you ever used a second and larger screen?
Your computer may think it is still there. If the second screen is set to duplicate then the image on smaller first screen is shifted left right up and down when you move your cursor towards the edges. And you are close to the edge on the taskbar. Hence the window you just opened may be shifted off the screen on the moment the cursor left the taskbar.
So please check you display settings, even if you did not use a second screen, whether you are using the correct pixel size for your screen
