Hello and welcome to the forum.
With a program open and showing on the taskbar as active (a light underline under the taskbar icon), hold the Windows logo key on your keyboard and strike the left arrow key several times.
See what that produces.
Failing that do the same thing only strike the right arrow key several times.

I don't know.
The symptoms you were describing is sometimes unique to systems (laptops and desktops) where multiple monitors are or have been used and Windows still thinks they are present, even if they aren't.
So applications are opening on a non existent monitor and sometimes using that key combination will force them over to the active monitor.
It was just a shot in the dark to see if it would help.
