another error that persist for few years on Windows systems is that red close window button sometimes dissapears.
Thank you for your post.
What version of FileMaker Pro are you using?
What actions do you take that makes the red Close Windows button inactive?
Are you using a custom menu that has Close Window disabled? Do you have a dialog box open?
Any other information you can provide may be helpful in determining the cause.
sorry I did not express myself 100% correct. I ment the buttons for closin, maximizing or minimazing complete filemaker. (new picture below). All three buttons dissapear. I have not yet find a pattern at which this occour.
Also if new fm file is open the buttons are still gone.
Create a new Windows user account, login to the new user account, launch FileMaker Pro and create a new database file. If you can close out the FileMaker Pro application, then the issue is with the original user account. If you still cannot exit the application, then I would reinstall FileMaker Pro.
We have tried all this. But without success. Also this happens only in filemaker.
Since I am unable to replicate the issue using Windows 10 and FileMaker Pro 15.0.3, the issue appears to be either FileMaker Pro or your system.
Download a fresh copy of FileMaker Pro, and temporarily install it on another machine. Create a new file and see if the issue occurs. If the issue doesn't occur, then reinstall the fresh copy of FileMaker Pro onto your original machine. See if the issue occurs. If it still occurs, then you may need to perform a clean install of your system.
