Can only view fsuipc7 in full window

Fsuipc loads fine with fs2020 but the only way I can get to the fsuipc control window is to minimize fs2020 and maximizing fsuipc window.

Alt-f starts to display it but quickly disappears behind the fs2020 screen.

I have a multi monitor setup and I've tried changing from full screen to windowed but wherever I drag the sim window the fsuipc window goes with it. Behind it!

If I right click fsuipc on the task bar and click maximize it will display spanned across all my screens.  

Any ideas?

Is this when MSFS is in full-screen mode? Strange, as I don't see this behavior. What happens if you press alt+f and then click the FSUIPC task bar item?
And if you press alt+ enter (when MSFS has the focus - to put MSFS back in windowed mode) and then alt+f to display the FSUIPC window, does it then display ok?

Has it always been like that for you? Nothing has changed in this area since initial release and this is the first I have heard of such issues. Do you have anything running (or an MSFS option maybe) that is keeping the MSFS window on-top?

Got it resolved, it kept loading off screen and I was trying to move it back on screen incorrectly.  I thought it was loading behind msfs because it would flash a quick window directly on top of msfs when I tried to launch fsuipc.

I'm not sure why some programs do this from time to time with but we're good now.  I actually bought Display Fusion to help me with issues with multiple screens.

Thanks,
Ken

Ah, yes - this can happen if you are changing screen sizes/resolution/etc. You just need to remove the Window ini parameter from the [General] section of your FSUIPC7.ini file so that it reverts to the the default size/position.

I am also looking for a multi-screen solution for MSFS. I'll take a look at this, thanks.
