A strange thing happened to me when I was teaching a Revit course on TeamViewer. I was demonstrating moving the project and properties browsers around the screen and off the screen when suddenly the project browser disappeared completely.

Initially, I thought the installation had gone corrupt. Would I need to uninstall and reinstall Revit again? Was the issue that I was running TeamViewer? Is TeamViewer corrupting Revit? Is it a Windows update issue, or the fact that I am running multiple monitors?

I decided to try the easiest solution. I switched off the computer, unplugged the extra monitors, and started up the computer again (TeamViewer not running).

This did not fix the issue. So after a bit of searching on the net, I applied the following instructions. The one that worked for me, was a simple thing. Open windows settings.

Autodesk, Micrographics, Revit 2022, Project Browser, Windows Display Settings

Choose to view the System settings

Select each of the monitors, in turn, scroll down to the scale and layout section, and set the zoom to 100%.

After this was done, the Project browser was once again available for docking in the software.

If that does not work, then there are some more steps one may consider taking in the instructions. Specifically, shut down Revit, then browse to the following folder. And delete the UIState.dat.

C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Revit\Autodesk Revit 2022

If this does not work, then you may consider creating a case with Autodesk support or try to repair or reinstall.
