Is there anyway to close the orienation view dialog box other than the X on it? Somehow mine has gotten the top half out of the window and it is pinned on and I cannot get it back on the screen.
You could try temporarily setting the screen resolution to a higher setting. Hopefully that will allow access to the corner icons.
Les the only way I can think to fix the problem is to reset you SolidWorks registry settings.
Close SolidWorks and got to Start > Run > type regedit > go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > SolidWorks > SolidWorks 20XX
Rename SolidWorks 20XX to SolidWorks 20XX-OLD (this is just to keep the backup of existing actually registry file), close the registry and restart SolidWorks. This will essentially reset SolidWorks to its as installed settings, so you will have to set all the options again. If this works, return to the registry and delete the SolidWorks 20XX-OLD key.
P.S. 20XX denotes the SolidWorks version.
