    Hello JS, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Odd. Check to see if it may just be offscreen.

    I know what he means, the Windows of Chrome may be in an area outside of your visible desktop. Try hitting Alt+Tab, then the Chrome Window can be selected.

    I can click on it in the toolbar at the bottom. But it doesn't maximize.
