PF3 has worked for years, but now when I start PF3 I get no display on my desktop. Is GUI the proper name? The display that gives me options and the selection of the flightplan etc.

Another Program that frequently does this is the FlightSim Commander GPS display. But when it disappears there is a tool in the FSC9 folder called FSC.exe which brings up a window which says, "Reset FSCommander, GPS and Navigation Data Window Position". Clicking on that option brings the display back to the screen.

I also use multiple monitors. When some programs like Excel or Word are minimized on my secondary computer, I can't bring them back to display. The solution is to reduce the screen resolution.

I see no provision in my PF3 for a function similar to FlightSim Commander, and changing screen resolution does not bring the PF3 display back to the screen either.

If I try again to start PF3, I get a pop up window that tells me, "PF3 is already running on your computer.

How do I get the PF3 display back on my screen?

It's on our FAQ's ;)

It would seem you have managed to somehow move PF3 off-screen. Here's how to get it back. Hold your Shift key down and Right-click on the PF3 taskbar icon, then select 'Move' from the popup menu. Release the Shift key and use one of your keyboard Arrow keys. Now move your mouse and PF3 should appear on screen again.
