I can’t find the DRE window

System Tray

DRE might be minimized to system tray:

  1. Open the system tray additional icons
  2. Locate and click on the DRE icon

DRE in system tray


Outside screen bounds

To get the window back there are two options:


Alt Space M

  1. Make sure DRE is running and focused in the task bar
  2. Click ALT+SPACE then M
  3. If possible click the Move option
  4. Use the arrow keys to move it up/down left/right until you see it
  5. Hit Enter when finished



DRE keeps track of its window position and size. For some reason it may have moved outside your window area, so to move it back, do the following:

  1. Make sure DRE is not running (Open Task Manager if unsure, and check for DRE.exe)
  2. In Windows Explorer paste this into its address bar: %LocalAppData%/DRE/Docs
  3. Open the States.json file with a text editor (right-click -> Open with -> Choose eg. Notepad)
  4. Alter these values in the file to the following, and save the file afterwards:

“AppWidth”: 800.0,

“AppHeight”: 600.0,

“AppPosLeft”: 400.0,

“AppPosTop”: 400.0,

“AppWindowShrinked”: false,

“AppShrinkedPosLeft”: -1.0,

“AppShrinkedPosTop”: -1.0,

“AppWindowState”: 0,
