Drawing recovery manager not opening automatically at start up after a crash

The Drawing Recovery Manager Dialog box use to open automatically upon start up after a crash. It will open from the pull down menu or the command line. It sometimes opens after i open a drawing. It just saves a step and i got use to it opening upon the restart of Autocad. Is there a setting somewhere that i haven't found and is this happening to anyone else?

What is RECOVERYMODE set to? Is it physically closed, or just hidden?

If "drawingrecovery" doesn't bring the recovery manager to view it may be set to auto hide or hidden behind another window. Close all ACAD/C3D internal windows and look for it. If you had more monitors than you have currently it could be on a missing monitor, I don't remember the windows process to find those screen, but it shouldn't be hard to find.

Thank you but it is not hidden and not behind any other application. As i said, if i type in the command or use the pull down menu it opens up fine. Just not opening automatically on restart after crash
