A palette will not appear in the list of palettes to be shown if it is already showing.
It sounds like Win10 doesn't really support un-docked windows if they disappear when the focus is on another window. This is something out of Denemo's control, being a feature of how the library that is used to display windows co-operates with the Win10 system.

You say "when it is closed" you couldn't find how to reopen it. When it is closed, it appears in the list of palettes to open. I suspect it is not closed but Win10 is just not making it easy to see it. I think I have heard of people finding ways to work with this Win10 behavior, but I don't know the details; an internet search may help.

With Un-docked palettes the name of the palette is in the title bar of the window. When they are docked it would be a good enhancement if the "Edit this Palette" button were labelled "Edit xxxx Palette" giving the name.

The "General" Palette does not appear in the list of palettes. So when I tried undocking it, it could be moved but disappeared (except that it became visible from the shortcut button on my Win10 machine (as does the Typeset Music, Score Layout etc).
However when it was closed I could not find a way to reopen it. Show Palette did not give it as an option!

In general it would be nice if, when I wanted to find the name of a visible Palette, it would be easy to do so, from the Right-click menu perhaps
