Sims 4 Minimized

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Newbie

I tried to open the Sims 4 recently and my screen just went black before the game came up minimized.  Every time I opened it, it would just minimize itself.  The furthest into the game I've gotten is the blue loading mouse over the black screen for a fraction of a second.  I uninstalled and reinstalled the game.  I tried repairing the game from Origin.  Origin in game is disabled for the game and overall for all of my games.  I'm not using any mods/custom content. Everything is up-to-date but still nothing.  How can I fix this and play my game?

Could you try this solution: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/The-Sims-3-Keeps-Minimizing/m-p/2700424#M143895

 

It's for Sims 3 but it should work for Sims 4 accordingly.

@amrox98 Tried the listed solution for The Sims 4, it didn’t work nor was the info in the ini file as described shown. Why? Is there a recent solution (as of July 26, 2020) that works?
