How do I view my Reminder window in Outlook 2013?

This past weekend I noticed that I am unable to view my reminder's window in Outlook 2013.  It displays as usual minimized at the bottom of the screen.  But, when I select it to view, nothing happens.  It is not in the background either.  If I minimize everything and select this window from the bottom, nothing happens.  I can only view it in the small, minimized state at the bottom.  I don't know what happened to cause this behavior, but how do I fix this? I tried closing and reopening Outlook, rebooting, restoring to a previous restore point.  Nothing fixes this.

So you've already gone up to the Outlook toolbar, and in the View tab, you click on the Reminders Window button.  Then the reminders window just stays minimized in the taskbar?  (Where it probably shows up as an icon of a bell and says 1 reminder.)

Perform an Office Repair.

Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features.
Find Microsoft Office.  Choose Change.  Then Repair.

Yes I already clicked on the Reminders Window button from the View tab.  I actually have many reminders, but just as you say, the window just stay minimized in the taskbar.

I tried the Repair.  Afterwards, the Reminder window still has the same behavior.

Do you by chance have a multiple monitor setup?  Maybe the Reminders Windows is being displayed on another monitor.  Toggle the Windows Key+P, until you choose PC Screen Only.
