No "Main Menu" or "Window Borders"

I just got a new laptop to work from home (Win 10-64bit). Most of my work I do by remoting to my desktop in the office and displaying the remote connection on my 2nd monitor - 42" TV.

My problems in TOAD (Oracle) started once I used the new laptop and the remote connection:

  1. the main TOAD window is missing the "main Menu" and I can't find anyplace in the preferences where I can switch it on. Found an old forum entry from 2007 using registry
    to fix issue, but wasn't sure if that solution is not too outdated.

  2. every window (schema browser, editor, ....) opens up maximized and I can't see or access the "window control box" to minimize/close window, nor can I see the boarder of the window to re-size or move window.

Hence I dead in the water since I can switch between any existing windows.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

with Toad not running, edit Toad.ini with notepad.

It is in a location similar to C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\13.3\User Files\Toad.ini

Find the [MAINFORM] section. Edit the top and left settings. values of 100 for each should work.

THX that worked perfectly
