Here's a general tip for occurrences like the described below.
If a window is activated on taskbar but does not appear on the screen it often is simply placed outside of the screen. This also applies to windows, which title bar is off screen so you cannot grab it to move the window.
Solution (just tested on and works up to at least Win7):
- right click on task bar entry, or on the stacked entry
- select move
- use the cursor keys to move the window
- use one cursor key only once, from this point on the title bar is glued to your mouse cursor until you click
- now carefully move the mouse in all directions until you see the window (outlines) appear
- place window (outlines) and click once, et voila
