Hi Bruce,

Could be a corrupt ini file. On my windows 10 machine this is at:

C:\Users\Andy Taylor\AppData\Local\dBASE\Plus12\Bin\PLUS.INI

AppData is a hidden folder so you might need to reset your windows explorer settings to see the whole path.
Just delete the file, dBASE will generate a new one.
This file gets rewritten by dBASE with current settings every time dBASE is closed

Restart dBASE and see what happens.

Good luck,
