Default Can only see outlook when its fully maximized...

Hello-

I have a querky problem with my outlook in that if it is not maximized it is
invisible. It shows in my taskbar but if i right click it and click maximize
it will show up, but then if I click the button to the right of the close
button at the top while maximized (the double window button to make it
smaller and so I can adjust the size and or move it around) you can see the
window 'de-maximize' but it goes invisible. To see it again i have to right
click the item in my taskbar and click maximize.

Not totally unusable but definately annoying! Anyone know whats up?

Thanks!

If you make your screen resolution smaller, do you see a little title bar?
If yes, move it to the middle of your screen and drag the corner to increase
it from the title bar to a small Outlook window.

Exclamation

This problem is still an issue 5 years! later.
I have Office 2010 installed and, since a windows update last night, I cannot use Outlook 2010 other than if the window is maximized.

ANy attempt to restore window to any other size fails completely.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate (swedish) and this is the first time the error has ever occured.
It is though a major problem for me as it's on my business computer, and I rely heavily on that things work. This error should never happen...

Does anyone have similar experience, and maybe a proper solution (and maybe even a reson) for this?

Sincerely
/Bjarne Dahlin

UPDATE (PROBLEM SOLVED) ****************************************

(There's no given reason for the behaviour, but at least I can get back to work :-))

I know this is an older thread, but I had the same problem today, win7 ultimate, outlook 2010 - driving me crazy, if I hover over the task-bar icon, I can then right click on the window and choose maximize, but any other attempt to resize, move, etc makes it disappear.

Finally I figured out a solution: Right click on the task bar and choose "Cascade Windows".
