Try resetting the dialogs in the File->Preferences panel.
wow thanks, I did not notice that command. I was looking for something like that under 'View' ribbon. (To be fair to me, it probably should be in the view options).
Not sure where the panel ended up but i do use dual monitors and recently changed to having 1 monitor plugged in to the dGPU and one into the iGPU, maybe the panel was positioned on a monitor that was no longer physically there and impossible to get to.
