Thanks for your replies. I figured out what the problem was. Apparently I'd
undocked the Shapes window, and it was floating outside the main Visio app
window. I run Visio on my laptop, with multiple monitors both at work and at
home. At work I have a dock, so am running Windows on two external monitors.
At home, I do not have a dock, so am running it on one external monitor and
laptop. Apparently, I last used Visio at work, so when I opened it at home,
the Shapes Window was floating on another monitor that wasn't hooked up. This
happens all the time with Word, but with Word I'm at least able to
right-click the taskbar, click Move, and then bring the Word window back on
screen with the arrow keys on the keyboard.
My solution was to change my display settings so that my laptop monitor was
the only monitor (turned off Extend my desktop to this monitor in Control
Panel > Display > Settings). This forced all windows onto one display. And
there was my Shapes Window floating in my Visio window. I docked it inside
the Visio window, reset my multiple monitors, and was back in business.
looks like work."
