Pressing the ESC key is the clue here. It sounds like the AME window is opening but is not visible. Use the ALT+TAB key combination to cycle through your open windows and see if it brings AME to the front. If you have more than one monitor then try disabling all but one for testing purposes.

Thanks for the response. Yes, I am using 2 x 21" Monitors, but never had this issue before. Seems that Monitor 1 on the left was no longer the Primary Monitor, by changing it to Primary, the Export Settings now appear.
Thanks for the tip.
