    I have a weird problem. When I launch some apps - MS Office Reminders and Software Update particularly - I get a menu bar for that app, but no window and whatever I do such as Hide All Others, it won't appear.

    Any ideas?

    Running Leopard on an iMac and using Spaces which I feel may have something to do with it.

    Have you checked that spaces hasnt got the windows? cos it can do weird things with word in particular.

    Another thing, when i click on the word or excel icon, it generally collects all the windows together could be something to try.

    Hope that helps :)

    Have you tried restarting? I got that once and restart fixed it. Don't know what caused it, I don't even use Spaces.

    Not sure what you mean by Spaces having the windows. The menubar appears, but no associated screen in any of the spaces. And believe me I have looked hard!!

    Can't even find it if I hit "Hide all others".

    This happens to me sometimes in Spaces. usually have to quit the app and open it again.
