Window doesn’t show when using Cisco VPN Client 5.x/Windows 7

Recently I started having some issues with the Cisco VPN client window not coming to the foreground. After some digging I found the solution.

Windows 7

  1. Hold the Alt key, press Tab key until the VPN Client window is highlighted. Release Alt.
  2. Hold the Windows key and press the right arrow key once. This should bring the window back on screen.

Windows XP

  1. Alt-tab to the Cisco window2.
  2. Press Alt+Space.
  3. Press M.
  4. Press any Arrow key.
  5. Move the mouse. The window position should now follow the mouse cursor.
