From time to time I am getting this pop-up, "No Available Windows" on the desktop on my MacBook Pro. How can this be mitigated?

More info required. What are you doing when you see this message? What version of MacOS is your MacBook Pro running? Is the message random, or does it appear at specific times? It's very hard to give assistance with so little info to go on.

If you could elaborate, perhaps I - or, if not me, then someone else - could assist.
