SOLIDWORKS Missing Window Issue

This article describes how to fix the issue of a missing options window in SOLIDWORKS.

A common issue users run into is when a SOLIDWORKS window does not appear. For example, open a drawing file, right click on a sheet in the feature manager tree, and select Properties. The Sheet Properties window (image below) should appear.


If a dual monitor was initially being used, then the monitor was disconnected. The window may still be located on the disconnected monitor. 

To resolve this issue, repeat the workflow in which you would expect to see the window. Then select alt+spacebar on your keyboard. Now select on your keyboard, select the Left arrow key on your keyboard, and use your mouse to move the window back to your active screen.
