How do I get the windows back after I click on the "minimize window" button at the bottom of the screen?

So my imaging laptop is a Windows 8 machine, with the service packs etc. (it's up to date). I noticed that if I use the ALT+TAB method I can see that the windows are "there" but I cannot get them back.

Add me to the list. Windows 10 Home edition. When I hit minimize the window disappears with no way to restore the window. The button which launch the window still show the device as connected on the upper bar. when I click on the button it disconnects the device as it should.

Thank you all, the fix in Windows 8 is slightly different but can be found in same way Right click on desktop and go to screen resolution, then click on "Make text and other items larger or smaller" Check the box that says "Let me choose scaling level for all my displays" then select the "Smaller - 100%" radio button.

Thank you guys for finding this fix, it was driving me nutts.
