I'm using 2D and 3D elements direct (17.0 and 18.1) in Windows 10. For 2D, I still use 17.0 drafting most of the time because I know the interface well. After upgrading to Win 10 and starting Direct Drafting for the first time, all looked fine, I loaded a drawing and started the 'part browser'(pb), the window appeared, I tried to move the (pb) window to a new location and it disappeared. I've spent days trying to get it back including a complete re-install. No luck, the only thing I can think of is that the window is open "off screen" with no way to grab a handle to move it back into view. The way I work the 'part browser' window is critical to me to keep my drawings and part structure organized. Is there any way to specify where the 'part browser window opens? Or get the window back some other way? I tried running 'wui_part_browser' from the command line, no luck. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
Thanks for the quick reply. Tried the above. Tried deleting all the 'C:/Users/...../AppData/Roaming/....' files related to drafting 17.0, Uninstalled Drafting 17.0, and reinstalled from original CDs. No luck.
I think it's a good time to start using Drafting 18.1 and get use to the Fluent UI.

Why not, test it, but under the 18.1 (and also under 19) you can stil use the older UI´s.
Start- All Progamms - Ptc-Creo Elements Direct Drafting xx - Alternative UI - choice
Might be a problem comes through Win10
This is according to my knowledge, not yet supported by PTC.
Now you're a beta tester
That's why I have not changed on Win10.
I dislike this kind of surprises.
All the best and good luck
ps: >Try the F12 key which toggles it on/off.
