Description domen 2015-01-26 23:28:46 UTC
Sometimes Android Player window moves out of the computer screen and it's impossible to bring it back. This manifests in a way that you cannot restore Player once you minimised it.

Bug is not easily reproducible. Only way for restoring player window I know is to delete user.config file in AppData folder. It seems like the following values in this file cause problems:

<setting name="Top" serializeAs="String">
<setting name="Left" serializeAs="String">

This happens using Android Player Preview Release (Build 0.2.5) on Nexus 4, API 16 (I haven't tested other devices).

I use Windows 8.1, 64-bit.

This happened when I tried to restore minimised player.

When I restore player, it sometimes doesn't show immediately, so I try to minimise and restore it again. In rare occasions player disappears from the screen, but like I said, it's hard to reproduce this step.
