Well I finally had some time and a fresh brain. Sleep is our friend, important to remember that. So, I grabbed a cup of coffee and sat down at my desk. I looked at the problem, and then tried to refrain from cussing myself for over complicating such a simple issue.
If anyone else should have this problem; Carbide Create, or pretty much most any program, shows up in the Task Bar but not on the desk top, here is how to fix it, most of the time.
Try to open the program as normal.
Left click with the mouse on the icon of the program in the Task Bar to select it, hit the ALT and Spacebar keys. What looks like a drop down menu when right clicking on the Title Bar should appear somewhere on the desktop. Left click maximize. The program should show up on the desk top.
If you open a program like Carbide Create and have to adjust the size of the window every time, or are worried about this happening again, simply right click on the short cut that is on the desk top, (or where ever you have it placed), and go to properties.
From the tabs click on “Shortcut”, and look for Run:
There will a drop menu beside it. Simply select maximized, left click Apply, then ok.
Yeah, it really is that easy.
