Windows 10: Window keeps changing sizes. Solved

  1.    29 Jul 2015 #1

    Window keeps changing sizes.

    After I upgraded from 7 to 10 I noticed my browser window wouldn't stay at the size I scaled it to on my main monitor when I dragged and dropped a new tab from my other monitor. Also it keeps dropping it a few pixels away from the left edge.

    Here's a screenshot.

    If you look at the bottom left corner of the right monitor you'll see the offset and the vertical scaling difference from where I placed it manually. This happens every time I move the window from my left monitor to the right but not the other way around. I think the problem might have something to do with the small size difference between my two monitors.

    Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help.

    Edit: Found the solution here.

    Solution: Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics and look for the value PaddedBorderWidth. Default is -60 and changing it to 0 (with a reboot).
