    Laptop dual monitors overlay


    Hi,

    I have a laptop with an external monitor connected by a DVI to HDMI cable. Everything works fine but there is one feature I find annoying that I would like to disable. Whenever I click on a window's title bar to move it, an overlay of two monitors appears above the title bar. If you drag the window to one of the monitors in the overlay, the window gets moved to that monitor. It is kind of annoying and I'd like to disable that functionality. I've looked in Windows Display settings and both video system's settings utilities (on-board Intel and nVidia) and I haven't been able to locate an option to disable the overlay. Screenshot included. The overlay is outlined in yellow. Any ideas how to disable this feature?

    Same situation. Dual 4k monitors. No shortcut overlay on icons on 2nd monitor. Agree, recent update bug.

  3. windows 10 creators build loses desktop icon overlays on 2nd monitor

    I have 2 monitors.

    After upgrading to windows 10 creators build the icon overlay for shortcuts on my desktop are missing from the 2nd screen.

    If I move a shortcut from the 1st monitor to the 2nd it still shows the overlay, after I press F5 it loses the overlay, moving it back to the 1st restores the overlay.
