    Default help - I can't find my rendered image window...while rendering...!

    ... is there a shortcut?

    shift+q doesn't show it...

    hitting the "rendered frame window" doesn't show it...

    what the heck?!

    Under the common tab is a checkbox for Rendered Frame Window. I unchecked that by accident once, took me a bit to figure out what I had done

    Well you could try to reassign the shortcut and see if that helps. If not, well I don't know. Is it possible that it is there but just off screen? Like if you go from dual monitor to single. Wish I could be of more help.

    If it is offscreen, start a render to make the render window current. Then alt-space for the "window menu". "m" for move. Now hit an arrow key to nudge the window. This gets it in an "I am moving" frame of mind. Now wiggle the mouse and your window should appear.

    If this does not work, either you are doing it wrong or the window is not merely off screen. Or I messed up my instructions, but really, that just leads to... you doing it wrong ;-).

    I don't know what it is exactly but I can tell you that I encounter this as a bug from time to time. I usually panic and maximize, minimize max until it reappears. The good news is that regardless of what youve done, once rendering is completed, you can just hit the view rendered frame window key and it will still be in the frame buffer. Any elements usually pop up as new windows anyhow so that's an unfortunate drawback if they also dont appear, but who knows.you could get lucky.

    thanks for the tips guys! ...well, i got lucky and restarted the computer a few times this morning and the window reappeared!

    @coreyMBeaulie - you're right about letting the render finish then "viewing rendered window" but I was working iwth IRAY and unlimited iterations!

    prost!
