    I see.

    So we were in the "Multitasking" section, changing up some options in there..

    Try some options in the "Tablet Mode" section:

    And also in "Display". Try changing your Display resolution to something bigger and see if your windows can go to the exact corners.

    But make sure you remember which settings you already have as your defaults before modifying all that. Hopefully there's some setting that may fix all that.

    I gave up on this, just learned to live with it. Don't even notice it any more.

    Go download winaero tweaker, search for borders and reduce border width and border padding (this is key) to zero.

    Close and reopen your program, it should now be flush to the edge of screen.

    What else does it affect though? I may give it a try but I'm hesitant.

    Edit: Tried it. Border width minimum is 1, which it was already set to. I dropped padding to 0, will see what that does.
    Edit2: Closest I can get is 1 pixel, still has a very small gap. Much less noticeable though.

    Try moving your window

    Try moving your window right to the edge then close then open again, it should be flush to the edge.

    I've managed to do so for a couple of PCs.

    That's what I did. When I sign out and sign in again the 1 pixel border is there, can't get rid of it.

    Are you actually able to set Border Width to 0? I can't, 1 is the minimum for me.

    Hi,

    The problem is Windows 10 "Touch Border" hidden settings! You can change a "Value" in a "Registry Key" to fix it (I had this problem since version 1909). Before changing the "Registry" you have to set both "Tablet" options to "Never use..." and "Don't switch..." in "Settings".

    1- Change "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics\PaddedBorderWidth" value to "0".
    2- Restart.

    Doesn't work for me. I have the exact same problem as the original poster.
    Since Windows 10 I cannot drag to fit the entire edges of the screen!

    In fact I posted the problem before the OP did 1 year and 8 months ago. Since Windows 10 update the edges of the screen do not get remembered from the position that they are left. Meaning you can drag the program to the edges of the screen, but if you exit and then reopen, the exact same dreaded effect occurs with gaps at the edges of the screen (albeit thin ones).

    This is happening with my Sumatra PDF viewer, all Web Browsers and Microsoft Office.

    It is quite remarkable that this doesn't happen with Notepad, though!

    Otherwise all programs need to be launched maximized, only then Windows will maximize fully. Though, it isn't as aesthetically pleasing, but I can live with it. And have since then adapted to this.

    By default my PaddedBorderWidth is -60 but changing it to 0 makes no difference for me even after restarting.

    I have had this problem since Windows 10 1809. But when I had Windows 8.1, 7 and Vista prior, this issue never occurred.

    As I realized it is "Windows 10" side They didn't notice or they don't want to be noticed!

    Another thing that I guess is "Graphic Card Driver". I disabled discrete one which is AMD (in "Device Manager") and it worked great with onboard one (Intel). I updated both drivers by downloading from AMD and Intel (official website) but sometimes it occurs again! I updated both drivers (AMD and Intel) from "Microsoft Windows Update Centre" and it worked like a charm!

    Conclusion(!): You have another option! You have to uninstall all GDs (=Graphic Drivers) from "Device Manager" and update those drivers by clicking on "Update driver" (in "Device Manager") then change the "Registry Key" that mentioned in previous post, restart...

    I have two computers running Windows 10. One is a Toshiba C855 running the Home version, and the other is a Dell M6700 Covet running the Pro version.
    Do you have "Integrated Graphic Card"?
