Mixer Menu Off Screen

• Jul 27, 2015 - 21:10

So I was editing the volume of my instruments and I must've moved the menu off to the bottom of my screen and now it's staying there where my cursor can't reach. Every time I click view > mixer, or press F10 it appears there and I can't use it. I've tried updating both musescore and my computer (Windows 7), restarting my computer, uninstalling and reinstalling musescore and nothing helps.

I might be able to add in duplicate instruments and delete the ones that I've muted, but I still want to be able to access the mixer. Help, please?

I've attached an image showing where the menu shows up.

Looks like the Windows taskbar is hiding the MuseScore mixer.
Try this:
1. Right click on the Windows taskbar
2. Click on 'Properties' to display 'Taskbar and Start Menu Properties'
3. On the taskbar tab, using the drop down list, move the 'Taskbar location on screen' to Top (or Left or Right).
4. Drag the MuseScore mixer back to where you can access it and then return the taskbar to its normal (Bottom) position.

Here's another solution that should work in most versions of Windows:

Method #1
NOTE: Method #1 won't work with a maximized Window.
Alt-Tab or Click On the Window
Press "Alt & Space"
Press "M"
Use your arrow keys to move the Window
Press Enter to exit

*Method #2*
NOTE: Method #2 will move your Window to the right or left half of the screen in the same manner as dragging a window to the right or left of the screen will.

Press the Windows Key & Right Arrow or Left Arrow
