I just installed MikTex to run LaTex on windows by following the instructions on their web page, but every time I try to open the MikTex Console, I get an error that the console is already running.

MikTex Console is already running

Any help with how to solve this is much appreciated

Thank you.

    Perhaps you double-click to run it? Stop it with the Task Manager, and relaunch it with a single click. – Bernard Jul 27 '18 at 1:59
  • Or perhaps you have minimized MiKTeX Console to the tray? – Christian Schenk Jul 27 '18 at 7:49
  • @Bernard I did not double click, I used the windows key and typed to search then clicked on the return button. – mupierrix Jul 27 '18 at 23:51
  • @ChristianSchenk I closed all the windows I had opened. Restarting the laptop fixed it. – mupierrix Jul 27 '18 at 23:54

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because solved with a reboot mentioned in an comment. – Mensch Apr 8 at 5:27
