Chromium window suddenly becomes invisible (SOLVED)
« on: May 10, 2014, 03:30:49 am »
This has happened several times: Chromium disappears except from the top bar. I have tried to minimize all the other windows, right click on Chromium and choose "Always on top", but I couldn't get it to reappear and had to just close Chromium. I was watching a video when it happened last, maybe connected?

Hi nberidze, how's it going?  It sounds like you are inadvertently using the rollup feature.  Try hovering your mouse arrow over the "top bar" and use your scroll wheel on your mouse.  The window should roll up and roll down, like a blind on a window.  I couldn't figure out where my windows were disappearing too either   ;D.  It was driving me nuts.  Now I find it a great feature.  Its a really useful if you have a lot of windows open.  Hope this helps.  Have a great weekend   ;)!!

Thanks. You're right, that's what it was. I also notice the option "Roll window down" in the menu I get when I right click on the top bar. Have a nice weekend.
