    Locking the PC re-arranges all windows, layout etc


    Hi all.

    Upgraded to W10 a month or so back from W7. Primary reason was I had a new 4K monitor (in addition to two 1080 displays), and the scaling in W10 was supposed to be a lot better. It is, but it's not perfect. Anyway, I can live with that.

    However, one massive annoyance is that when I lock the PC (I do whenever I leave my desk), upon unlocking all the windows I have open move about. Things that I have one screen 1may move to screen 2, and resize. Other things from 3 move to 1 and resize. there's no logic to it, and it's appears to be totally random.

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    Thanks.

    Shamelessly bumping this - the problem is on-going and driving me mad! Any hints / pointers would be great, thanks.

    For now I've set all monitors NOT to power off after inactivity, but this isn't an ideal solution, spoken as someone with a carbon footprint more akin to a carbon shoe shop!
