Issue Details

My probe watch window is invisible! The icon shows up in the tray but the window on the desktop is missing. 
How do I fix this?


Here are some troubleshooting steps to try:
  • If you are using a multiple monitor setup, check to see if the Probe Watch Window is on any of your other screens
  • Open up your Windows Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Delete >> Task Manager) and verify that the 'Probe Watch Window' is running under the 'Processes' tab. You may have to expand your LabVIEW process for this. Right click the Probe Watch Window >> Maximize to open up the Probe Watch Window. If this doesn't show up on your main screen, make sure to check your other screens as well.
