I run dual monitors with V8i. always have. today I opened a dgn file and the second window won't maximize. I see it in in the taskbar, but when I click it, it won't maximize. also, the toolbox that lets turn on and off the 8 different windows has gone away. any fixes?
What happens if you do right click on the taskbar and select view Toggles? see screen shot

that turned on the manage view groups tool. thanks for that! but the window still won't maximize the second window
showing the taskbar with both windows open, but only one will maximize.
Did you try from Maximize? see screen shot
Are you getting any error message or alert?
If not, you could try going to Workspaces menu\preferences\category: operation and turn off Open two application windows, press ok, close MicroStation and reopen MicroStation again to turn on the same option back.
I think this worked!!! I was able to maximize the second screen and window. thanks so much guys! for a day or so I had my 3 screens but could only use one for microstation! you never know how much dual screens help until you can't use them :-)
