Mix Console stays minimized

So basically I create an empty project and hit F3. So in the console I have sends and channel strip, eq etc. up there but it’s closed and doesn’t expand and open. It used to open and I’d see knobs and insert strips etc.
Now it’s just a bunch of boxes that don’t expand.

I tried the Safe Start Mode - Resetting The Cubase Preferences

I hold down CTR ALT and Shift then start the program. That opened the windows dialog do I want to allow this program to make changes to this machine? Yes starts the program like regular, no just stops the program from running.

Any help appreciated.

Hi Tacman7,

the information in the KB article was wrong. You have to first start Cubase and then press those three keys.
