Can you provide a simple .blend file (or .obj ...) + precise steps to reproduce the bug?
So we can test.

Videos and/or links to external sites etc. are not recommended as bug report (they can be provided as additional information only).

  1. no files are required
  2. macOS specific

This is caused by the fact that the File Browser is a child (modal) window, e.g. View Render works fine.

To reproduce:

  • File > Open
  • switch File Browser to fullscreen mode
  • close File Browser and you will get Blender without any window

Opening a file will automatically close the File Browser window and you will get Blender without any window as well.

Bug present in 2.81.

@Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) I am sorry I disagree with you all message.

I am not good explain text only. I do use sign language ASL.

I don't think T77621 has anything to do with this report. Neither do I think this one should be high priority, since Blender doesn't actually crash but windows get hidden.

Only for Mac when open the file and close file cause black screen within ENTER FULL SCREEN

Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) lowered the priority of this task from High to Normal.Jun 10 2020, 3:23 PM

The words: "crashes" and "black screen" reminded me of T74255: macOS fullscreen crashes when opening save panel and T76218: Main window turns black when operating file view in full-screen mode that were merged here.
And we are having a lot of reports apparently related to this recently.

@Julian Eisel (Severin) it sometimes crashes (it is unclear what it depends on).

Yes when file close make black screen and I have to Control + Command + F 2 times make back normal.

@Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) T77621 does not mention full-screen mode, which is the crucial bit for the reports here. So I would be careful with merging them, we may loose a valid separate issue that way.

You did not deeply inspect as well I am show you my iMac video youtube.
