I'm new at blender, I just lost the main window with blender logo/file/edit/render/window/help

I only have a small screen with 3D view or timeline for example... I don't know how to get the original interface back.

If I open a new file, it comes back, but if I open the one that have a problem, the main interface don't come back.

The image is the only interface I can get.

Thanksenter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ This view can be opened with Window -> New Window, but I'm not sure how it can exist independent of the Main Window. Is the main window minimized or hidden from view? $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 21, 2023 at 14:51
