A quick way would be to reset the layout (Window>Reset Window Layout).

Happened to me a few times as well.

(Window>Reset Window Layout) fixed it.

Don't know why it occurs.

Maybe it is floating and offscreen?

Are you changing your screen layout?
This can happen if you have multiple monitors or if you are using terminal services.

For normal windows you can use Alt+Space to open their system menu, but this doesn't work on tool windows.

Using my toolbar macros: https://community.slickedit.com/index.php/topic,15213.0.html
Once the search tool is active, press Ctrl+NumPad5 and it will toggle from floating to docked.
