    Got an app that thinks it's in full screen but it stays on the desktop while opening a blank full screen window. Thus I can't use the app! Can I stop it opening in full screen temporarily? As it does this every time it opens. On 10.7.5

    Cheers

    Without knowing what app it is, it's difficult to help you.

    But you could try trashing all the preferences file for the app.
    You should check for an update for the app.
    Double check the preference settings for the app.

    Can you clarify what you mean by this? Do you mean the Desktop folder, or the Desktop in the sense of the entire display of the monitor, minus the menu bar?

    Again, knowing what the app is might help.

    Thanks for the replies, trashing prefs did the trick!
