Dear Alex

This is a shot in the dark, but sometimes I have had windows that went "off the screen". This is how I have brought them back...

  - Select the do-file editor in the taskbar
  - Press Alt-Spacebar (this bring up the menu for that window)
  - Press M (this selects the "move" option)
- Use the arrow keys (up down left right) to try and re-position the window onto the screen.

I hope this helps.

Best luck!

Hi everyone,

I can't view my do-file editor window anymore.  I am running Windows
XP and STATA 10.  I have fully updated using -update all-.  If I click
on the New Do-File Editor button then a pop-up window for the Stata
Do-file Editor appears in my task bar but if I click on it nothing
happens.  Even if I minimize all other windows I still can't see my
do-file editor.  I think this happened around the time I first started
using Mata and also linked Notepad++ to Stata.  I don't know if either
of these had anything to do with it.  As I am currently editing
do-files in Notepad++ it isn't a big issue but I was just wondering if
anyone else has experience the same thing---I checked the Statalist
archives with the search "Do-file editor window" but didn't see

Kind regards,
