Component window missing on screen Just Upgraded to 2021 (losing my mind)

window missing when i go to create component, it is opening off screen i guess?

using windows 10

Follow this guide exactly after “Make Component…”

  1. Hold down the ALT key. Hit SPACEBAR.
  2. Release ALT key
  3. Hit M (Move).
  4. Hit one of arrow keys
  5. Move your mouse around (without pressing any mouse key) until you see the missing window.
  6. Press left mouse button on the desired place

( Note I assume you have English windows otherwise you may need to replace “M” with a localized start letter, e.g. “L” in French)


In addition to the instruction @dezmo gave you, make sure you have installed Sketchup correctly. That means you right clicked on the downloaded installer and chose Run as administrator. If you didn’t do that, do it now and then choose the Repair option when it is presented.

thank you again that worked perfect

Worked for me too! Thanks for all the support!

I am working with 2 screens and this did not help.
I solved the problem by following the following steps (2 screen solution):

  1. disconnect 1 of the screens from your PC
  2. now you have 1 screen your sketchup is open on. open the window/vesters you are missing and do not close it.
  3. plug the cable of the 2nd screen back into the pc.

If all goes well you should have your standard window back.
