    Windows 10 Home

    Not only does it mess up the icons, it also screws up window placement and sizing for all your open windows. I'm getting really sick of it. I'm pretty sure it's a DisplayPort bug, so I'm going to have to switch back to using a HDMI cable...I hope that works.

    I had the same issue and I had tried everything. Switching to HDMI didn't work.
    Look up "monitor detect killer" this device took care of it for me.
