Hi, Ben:

It's possible that the window is opening off screen. This can be
caused by lowering your screen resolution, or changing to a smaller
monitor, between the time you closed FM with the window far
off-center, and opening FM in the smaller screen.

Have you tried using the Windows control menu - the one that comes up
when you click the icon in the top-left corner of the application's
(FM's) menu bar, choosing Move, then using the cursor arrow keys to
move a possibly-off-screen structure window bqck "home?" The structure
window may be to the left, right, top, or bottom.

I believe the window settings are saved in one of the maker.ini files
(there are two, one for user, one for application; use Windows Search
to find them. Make a safety copy, then pen in a text editor or FM and
look for windows location settings: four pairs of numbers separated by
commas, to define the corner locations. I think if you change the
first one to 10,10  it locates the top-left corner ten pixels down and
ten pixels in from the left. Save the file - IF IN FM, REMEMBER TO
SAVE AS TEXT! Quit and restart FM. If this messes things up, rename
maker.ini to xmaker.ini, and rename the safety copy to maker.ini, then
restart FM.
