Todoist for Windows - does not open


I have installed Todoist for Windows (on my notebook with Windows 7) – Todoist for Windows opened when I installed it, BUT after I closed it and tried to reopen it nothing happens / it will not reopen. The icon is on my desktop and start menu, but when I try and reopen the Todoist program, nothing happens. I uninstalled the Windows version and reinstalled it, and the same thing happens (or rather, doesn’t happen).

I had a similar issue and the app is actually still running. You will see the icon in the icon tray in the bottom right of your screen. Either use a hotkey (CTRL+SHIFT+T) or (CTRL+SHIFT+A) to reopen. Also if you wish you you can change the close behaviour so that it actually closes and doesn't minimize to the icon tray.

I would still like to see that if you double clicked on the icon that it would make it visible again. I too thought that this was a bug at the start.

Thanks Sean! That was really helpful.

I think the hotkey is actually (CTRL+ALT+T) rather than the combination shown above.
