  I just started using v9.1 on windows xp professional.  I had several apps running in different screens, then after switching to screen 1
the applications I was running in screens 2 and 4 disappeared.  I switched back to 2/4 and they were not there.  I had to go to
task manager and kill them.

If you right-click on the icon in the taskbar there is an option to "recover windows" which will display all the hidden windows.  You can recover the
lost window from there.

The problem is: the programs aren't in the taskabar, only find in the taskamanager as a running process. And there is no mouse menu existing with recover or something else, only end task....

I have the same problem.
Most times it happened when I'm switching from virtual Desktop 1 to 4.
Then no virtual desktop change will be only all windows from virtual Desktop 1 dissapered.

The same problem I have if Fxcop is trying to open a new Visual Studio instance. Then the new VS instance is hidden.

gillo, I think ajsica meant that you should right-click on the VDM icon and then click on Recover Windows...
