    Edge fullscreen - Mouse Over a link shows link URL on another display*


    Had difficulties to find a descriptive title for this.

    A screenshot:

    Screenshot above shows approximately this area of my displays #1 & #3:

    Edge is full screen. Any content that other browsers would show in status bar which Edge doesn't have, like URL when I mouse over a link, is shown on display #3 when Edge is full screen on display #1. It is very disturbing.

    Happens on both build 15002 and 15007.

    Any ideas, how do I stop this?

    The screens are overlapping? Those screen numbers on the display settings are draggable. Drag the screens so that they don't overlap.

    A good idea, thanks, but displays are not overlapping. That has been tested and eliminated as a cause.

    Again a good idea. Didn't help.

    Still no idea what this was but it seems to have been display driver related. Booted to Safe Mode, uninstalled both on-board Intel and Nvidia GPU drivers, restarted normally letting Windows find and reinstall them, problem resolved.

    I should have thought of that before posting.
