    Adjust desktop position

    I clean installed Windows 10 for the first time in March 2021. I'm using a 10 years old motherboard with Windows 10 Pro 20H2 32-bit. I was previously on Windows 7 Pro SP1 32-bit.

    The start menu and taskbar looks correct, but the x-axis coordinates are off.

    I tested the Chrome window with the AutoHotkey AU3_Spy.exe Active Window Info utility. If I resize the Chrome window vertically to the top most position, then the active window position top value is 0. If I resize the Chrome window horizontally to the left most position, then the active window position left value is -6, not 0.

    How do I adjust the x-axis coordinates?

    I tried...

    Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > NVIDIA Control Panel > Display > Adjust desktop size and position

    There is no "Position" tab like in the following article.

    The monitor user guide says that position adjustments are only available for VGA input. I'm using DVI input.

    What I see in your image is the Command Prompt app is set at Maximized or Full Screen [Yes, those are different], the Start menu is active and the settings panel shows for only the Command Prompt app, not for the Desktop itself. Mine:

    My pic shows the Command Prompt window in normal mode, not maximized or full screen.

    I shouldn't see the blue background color on the left of the Command Prompt window when the window position left value is set to 0.

    I'm marking the thread as solved.

    I got confused because of the invisible borders for windows on Windows 10.
