It didn't look exactly like you said, but something I did got it.

I right-clicked and was able to maximize it. The session then took the
whole screen, but the actual 24x80 area only took up about 1/6 of the
screen in the upper left corner. I tried hiding/showing the session, no
joy. Minimize/maximize, no joy. Still only using 1/6 of the area.

So I signed on and navigated around the i a bit. Everything seemed to work
OK. I signed off and voila! The 24x80 area now filled the whole screen.

So I closed all the open sessions and double-clicked the desktop shortcut.
The SCOTTA1 session opened just like it's supposed to. Ta da!

Thanks for your help John.

*C. Move the window*

1. Click the Taskbar icon.

2. Then, hover over the icon to display its preview.

3. Right-click the preview.

4. Select "Move" from the pop-up menu that appears.

5. From here you may be able to use the cursor keys as mentioned above to
move the window back to the displayable area.

*D. Using the keyboard Windows keys*

Windows 7 lets you dock, maximize, and minimize windows via keyboard
Use this to your advantage.

Click the Taskbar icon representing the hidden window. Then press *Windows
+ Left-Cursor* or *Windows + Right-Cursor* a few times, and the window
should reappear on the Desktop.

It lists session A, I can select it, but it doesn't open for me. I tried
jumping to session A, no joy. I also tried hiding session A, then showing
it, also with no joy.

In one of the sessions you can see, Click Window show sessions
see if anything is in there, Mine resets on a reboot. If it does not shows
there try hiding it and then showing it.

Got a strange one. I think it's a Windows issue, so that's why PCTech list
instead of midrange-l.

IBM i is at 7.1, IBM i Access 7.1 Service pack SI41054, Windows 2008
Server R2.

We have a user, call him Scott, that has a single .ws file defined in i
Access, SCOTT.WS, which has a shortcut on the desktop. He normally starts
2 sessions by double-clicking the shortcut. Due to the settings I have for
him, the first session uses SCOTTA1 device description on the IBM i. The
2nd session uses SCOTTB1. If/when he opens a 3rd, it uses SCOTTC1. If he
opened more it would continue through the alphabet. Been set up this way
for years.

Starting last Thursday, the first session he opens (corresponding to
SCOTTA1) is not usable. It "shows" in the tray in Windows and that's it.
You can't do anything with it. You _can_ open Windows task manager and
kill it. If you go to the IBM i, that device description (SCOTTA1) shows
as "Signon Display". Subsequent sessions open fine.

I thought maybe the IBM i device description was damaged in some way, so I
deleted it. The next time he tried, SCOTTA1 was dutifully recreated, but I
still have the exact same problem.

Since he's clicking the same shortcut to start each session, I doubt theSCOTT.WS file has an issue.
