    Maximized applications cause monitor to shut off.


    I started having this issue about 4 days ago. Their have been a slew of updates from Windows 10 and from my GPU. When an application is Maximized, it causes my monitor to sometimes go to sleep. It is not 100% of the time, it is about 70-80% of the time.

    Chrome causes it to happen whenever swapping tabs in a Maximized window, or opening a new tab. Windows applications like file explorer, settings, etc... seem to be 100% when maximized.

    I have an LG27UD68 monitor using display port 1.2 at 4K 60hz. My GPU is a GTX 1080. Their have been no hardware changes.

    I have tried a complete fresh uninstall of my GPU driver using the clean uninstall utility. I also tried downgrading to the last WHQL version of my GPU driver (also using the clean uninstall utility).

    :)

  2. Maxzimize Button Missing in Microsoft Games in Version 1511

    I recently installed the Windows 10 update to Version 1511. Now the maximize button is no longer in the title bar of Microsoft games such as Sudoku.

    I have two monitors & want to be able to move the game to the 2nd monitor, leaving my primary monitor free for other applications. However, the games are stuck maximized & I cannot move them off of the primary monitor.

    How can I move them to the secondary monitor.

  3. Display

    Please follow the below steps and check if that helps.

    1. Open the application.

    2. Re-size the window so that it is not maximized or minimized.

    3. Move the window to the monitor you want it to open on by default.

    4. Close the application. Do not re-size prior to closing.

    5. Open the application.It should open on the monitor you just moved it to and closed it on.

    6. Maximize the window.

    Maximized applications cause monitor to shut off.

    It was the OnScreen Monitor utility for this LG monitor. Uninstalling it fixed the problem.
