I can't figure this out, never happened before...
Normally I use my laptop with an external monitor and extend my desktop across both monitors. When I take the laptop on the road I disable the external monitor output and everything works like normal, appearing on the laptop screen.
But this time I went out of town, took some pictures and wanted to edit them on the laptop. The problem I am having is that there are certain menus that I apparently had on the external monitor the last time I used them, and they won't show up on the laptop, even though the external monitor output is disabled.
For instance, I can open up Photoshop fine, but when I go to sharpen an image the sharpen dialog box opens but I can't see it, like it is being displayed on the other monitor, which isn't there anymore. When this happens the only way I can get out of Photoshop is Ctrl-Alt-Del, because it is waiting for a response in the dialog box before it will let me do anything else, including closing the image.
Same thing happens in my Sigma software. The settings adjustment button doesn't do anything because it appears to be opening it on the missing screen as well.
Anyone have a workaround for this? I have tried all the monitor settings and nothing seems to change it. It doesn't matter if you disable the second output or not, it still does it. I have also rebooted several times now and it doesn't seem to make a difference.
