Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

v4.1.7 on Windows 10

What is the problem

QBittorent is running in the background, I can see the program via alt tab or windows tab, but it does not maximize. I've restarted my computer, killed all process on task, doesn't solve it. Help!

I currently am suffering the same bug with the same software version running on the same OS. It behaves exactly as described: the qBittorrent app starts up but will not maximize. It is running, uploading, downloading, and it will start new torrents - the load new torrent window appears - but you cannot get the main UI window to display; you can only see it minimized to the task bar. This has been going on for days, despite multiple reboots and even reinstalling qBittorrent. I found a bug report for the same problem on an older version of qBittorrent from 4 years ago. In that case, they concluded that the problem arose from the setting "minimize to tray upon startup," which needed to be switched off. But how to access that setting if the program won't display to the screen? I don't know how to edit the config file; I'm not a programmer. I am also confused since I know for a fact I didn't ever enable that setting to start with. I did just upgrade to v4.1.7 before this problem occurred, so I assume the settings could have become altered during the install...?
