Mathematica Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Mathematica. It's 100% free, no registration required.

so I run mathematica on my surface pro with windows 8 pro,

when I opened a notebook in it and switched to my browser and some other apps it's sometimes impossible to go back to my notebook, it doesn't reopen the window. It gives me a windows warning sound but nothing pops up or shows, I just can't switch back

is this a certain setting in windows that needs to be changed or a mathematica bug?

Hi Matthias, welcome to Mathematica.SE! The bug tag is reserved for those confirmed officially or by the community as bugs. So right now let's wait and see if someone have an answer first. –  Silvia Apr 3 at 19:16
Are you switching to a Metro UI browser or a desktop browser? –  bobthechemist Apr 3 at 20:30
