    File transfer window always opens outside of the screen.

    This has been driving me insane, and I've tried searching it in the search, but can't find a thread.

    While I'm transferring a file for example, the file transfer window always opens outside the screen, it's really annoying. Does anyone have a fix? Screenshot:

    Tried moving it down, and re-opens outside the screen all the time, any help? Thanks.

    Hi caperjack, I'm currently not running my monitor on native resolution. It's on 1440x1080 stretched, as I play video games on that resolution. I'm also running a triple monitor setup, and if I run a resolution higher or lower that's not set as the default desktop resolution as the game, it will move for example, windows on my right screen more to right.

    I think in terms of height for the resolution, it shouldn't be a problem regardless of the decreased resolution. Since it is the same as 1080 height wise.

    Hey John1g,

    I'd echo what caperjack said.

    I noted that you have your screen "1440x1080 stretched." Are you able to bring the settings back to their defaults, just to see if that's causing the problem? Or perhaps adjust them here and there and then compare?

    Hi b1rd, I have tried it just now. Apparently the window goes off the screen now, odd. But of course, I can still move it, but gotta go to taskbar, right click, you know the deal.

It starts at around 300MB/s but after a second it drops to 20MB/s. On Windows 7 it was usually around 100MB/s. This is for transferring to second hard drive. It's even slower transferring to USB drive, about 2 MB/s.
