Musescore 4.3.0 bug? - Musescore opens, but won't show

• May 22, 2024 - 17:33

One day, I was doing some work in Musescore, and I don't know what I pressed, but I pressed a combination of buttons I didn't mean to press, and all of a sudden I couldn't see or pull up what I was working on anymore.

Now, anytime I try to open Musescore, the program itself will open, but I won't see anything. Even for 15 seconds, I still see my home screen instead of the Musescore window. My taskbar says that Musescore is open and running, but it won't show me anything whatsoever.

Here's everything I've tried (in no particular order because nothing has worked):
1. Repairing the program
2. Uninstalling and reinstalling the program
3. Restarting my computer
4. Opening from desktop shortcut
5. Opening from Windows Start menu
6. Opening a specific score instead of just the program

After trying all of these, I got no different results.


Never mind, the program's fine... I looked it up on Windows support, and I apparently minimized the window and it continued to minimize windows anytime I opened the program. If anyone else ever has this problem, hold "Shift" and right-click on the program in your taskbar, and select "Maximize". Hope that helps.
