So I open After Effects, I make a new project, composition, etc.
When I try to open a window, it doesn't work.
I click on:
Window->Effects&Presets or I press CTRL 5but it won't open. I click on it 10000 times, it won't work.
I managed to get it working choosing the standard layout, but I need some other plugins, such as Datamosh, or Color Themes, or Universe. I click on the window but it won't work.
Are you on a dual-monitor setup? If so, what happens if you remove the secondary one. Also, you could try resetting the preferences. Here's how: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/faq-how-to-reset-trash-preferences-in-after-effects/td-...
Let us know the results.
Yes, I am on a Dual Monitor setup, I tried removing the other one, I resented the preferences, but it is the same. Don't see the window pop up.
What happens if you try another workspace? What happens if you reset your workspace? Have you tried trashing your preferences?
System, OS, and AE version info would help. A screenshot showing the problem and the modified properties of the problem layer revealed (press 'uu') would also help.

Tried on a different workspace, didn't work, reset my workspace, and still didn't work.
