Roon only appears on the taskbar not in a window


Roon was working fine but today when I open the application I see the Roon splash screen which then immediately minimizes to the task bar. Clicking on the minimized taskbar icon does nothing. If I hit F11, Roon opens in full screen but I cannot open in a smaller window.

I had problems several months ago when roon would open as a white screen (windowed) after being minimized to the task bar. This problem lasted for months but eventually “cured itself” (driver update, windows update?).

Dell XPS 8700
AMD Radeon ™ R9 200 Series
Radeon Software Version 17.7.2
No integrated video
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (all latest updates)
Roon 1.3 Build 262

I am guessing I will have to wait until some unknown driver gets updated but any other suggestions would be welcome.


I have you changed screen resolution or Windows scaling?
I assume you’ve tried rebooting the Dell.
Can you think of anything that may have changed?

Hi @Gordon_Douglas ---- Thank you for the report and sharing your feedback with us, both are appreciated!

Adding on to @Carl’s questions, can you confirm if the graphics driver(s) are up to date in the mentioned device (i.e Dell XPS 8700)?
