    Application maximize slightly off

    Hi everyone,

    I am running a dual monitor setup. I got my laptop in a docking station which is connected to an external monitor. I use the monitor as my main display but when I maximize applications like chrome, visual studio, (everything really) a small portion of the application lands on the second monitor and there is a small gap between the left side of the monitor and the application (so the application is actually shifted to the direction of the second screen by a few pixels). It started after I upgraded to windows 10. I was previously running windows 8.1 where I didn't have this problem. Has anyone ever heard of this before? And does anyone know a fix for this because it is pretty annoying.

    System information:
    Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 10586) (10586.th2_release.160802-1857)
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
    Memory: 12288MB RAM
    System DPI Setting: 120 DPI (125 percent)
    GPU: NVIDIA Quadro K610M
    GPU Driver Version:

    Thanks in advance for everything!

    Edit: Rebooting and redocking my laptop fixed the problem somehow.

    When I've seen something like that [not often] it was because of a resolution disparity between the Notebook/Laptop display and the External monitor. The onboard video adapter controls the Notebook display panel better than the External. Usually don't see the problem when using a projector with that port. The Make/Brand and Model of the Notebook isn't given but it could have one of 3 types ports, VGA, DVI [unlikely] or HDMI.
