How to stop window from minimizing?

I’m on Windows, and whenever I open any kind of window - VST instruments, mixer, etc. the main window always minimizes. I thought that the “always on top” option in preferences would do it, but that makes no difference. How do I stop the window from minimizing?

Hi - welcome to Cubaseland, Scriabin!

One way is to choose that “inbetween” state between minimized and maximized (on the PC it is the top right thing with an icon of two monitors). It will stay in that state when you open the other windows.

Also you can use windows management … store presets … away from my DAW now, can’t remember exactly what they are called, but when you assign hot-keys to them, you can bring up different configurations.

Hope that helps a bit!
