Cura won't run any longer in Windows 10

Posted · Cura won't run any longer in Windows 10

Yesterday, Cura ran fine, I run Versions 3.6 & 4.7. This morning, when I open the Cura window, all I get is a white screen with "Ultimate Cura" in the upper5 left hand corner of the screen. If I click the minimize page button and then click on the Cura icon in the Task Bar, Cura opens. The problem is, I have to minimize EVER time I do an operation to make it take effect. So to load a file, I click on the Folder icon at the top left, minimize the screen, restore the screen and then I get a list of files in my most recent folder. I click on the file, minimize the screen, restore the screen and my file is on the build plate. The settings table on the left can only accessed the same way but that works intermittently. HELP!!!!


I should mention that I reinstalled each version thinking they were corrupted somehow but I get the same result as I described above.

    Do you use multiple displays? If so, try disabling all but one of them temporarily. If Cura starts succesfully with a single monitor, go to the General preferences and uncheck the "Restore window position on start". Then you can re-enable the other screens, and Cura should always open on your primary screen.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
