File window can't reopen once closed/covers code

I have two really frustrating issues:


1- If I close/shrink the Files window, I can't open it again.  It I choose it from Window >Files will briefly flash by on the screen, then is gone. I have to totally restart DW to upload files I am working on if it gets closed or shrunk down.


2 - Files window, when open, ALWAYS covers the file/code I am working on. I can click on any php, css or html file and Files will just sit on top of it. So I have to edge Files off to a corner if I want to edit some code, then upload without restarting DW (see #1). 


I've almost totally stopped using DW since this is such a pain.

Here's some info on how to set up your custom workspace.

How to customize the Dreamweaver workspace

Also, make sure your Files Window is not Expanded (there's a button for that in the Files Window Toolbar) which will cover the entire screen.

Once you have everything exactly as you like it, go to Window > Workspace Layout > New Workspace and give it a name. From there on out, anytime you reset the workspace as Nancy mentions, it will go back to your saved setting.

I have my custom Wordkspace (based on Developer) set up with Files panel on left side.  Clicking the arrows toggles panels open or closed.   See screenshot.  If this isn't working as expected, try resetting your Workspace.
