Cannot access the options menu

Hi! OCTGN is running fine on my computer under Windows 8, except for one detail: I cannot access the options. If I click on options, the window never appears. It seems to be open however, just invisible, as I can see the appropriate tab on the taskbar, and if I roll my mouse over the tab, I can even see the tiny option menu above it. In addition, if I click on the main OCTGN window, I get the chimes sounds it should make if it was overplayed with an option menu. I tried clicking on the options tab, but to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help! Note: I first had this issue under Parallels, but I then installed OCTGN on my bootcamp partition, and have the same issue. Also, I tried a number of compatibility options and running as an admin, but nothing gives...

The options window probably poped up behind the octgn window. You can try alt+tab, or alt+space m and then the arrow keys to move the window around.

Not sure if it's a double post, as I have also submitted a ticket, but in case of... Nah, I can select the tab fine. As I said, I can even see the minimized options windows above the taskbar. But alt-tabbing does not bring it up. It becomes the active window, but never displays...

Thanks a bunch, that did the trick! I have no idea why the options window appears off screen, sorry again for being a noob...

No don't worry about it. I'm sure this post will come in handy for other people as well, that's why I was posting more detailed information.
