Paint.Net doesn't open all the way

Recommended Posts

Above the Colors window, you have a floating title bar. That's Paint.NET, you've just shrunk the window to the minimum possible size. Click and drag any of the edges to resize it to something usable.

Or click the double-box icon (right next to the red X in that title bar). It looks a bit like this: :Xor:

This may also happen if you have a "multimonitor management" or "multi-desktop management" tool installed. AMD/ATI's HydraVision, for instance, is known to cause really weird things to happen to Paint.NET's tool windows. Uninstall it fixes this.

Since multimon has been part of Windows since 1998, these programs are almost entirely useless and I'm not sure why they still install them with some video card drivers.
