Sometimes the ActivStats windows appear in funny locations and sizes. To fix this, first exit from ActivStats. Find the preferences file for ActivStats and delete it; the file is named either "ActivStats Preferences" (Mac, located in "System Folder:Preferences:" or "/Users/your_account_name/Library/Preferences/") or "ActivStats.ini" (Windows, located in "C:\Windows\"). Launch ActivStats by clicking on the application icon (not the student file icon). Choose "Open Student File" and hold down either shift-option (Mac) or shift-control (Windows) while opening your student file. This prevents the loading of the window locations and preferences and only loads the student name, serial number, progress information, and bookmarks. Dont forget to save this fixed progress file!
If you seem to have trouble with the ActivStats application and want to reset
all preferences, start the application while holding down the shift-option keys (Mac) or shift-control keys (Windows).
