cracked it. I used the tray button! pressing that doesn't let you re-maximise from the task bar.

hovering over the icon shows a preview but you cant maximise again?

That happens to a lot of Windows programs that are supposed to minimize to the system tray, it's a bug in Windows not in the individual software. When a programs main thread is busy with something at the same time it's minimized, Windows will leave it in the taskbar *and* put it in the system tray. The taskbar tab is a reference to sort of a "phantom" window which doesn't exist, because it really has been sent to the system tray.
