    Non-maximized windows offset from edges of display


    Hello,

    I have two computers running Windows 10. One is a Toshiba C855 running the Home version, and the other is a Dell M6700 Covet running the Pro version.

    On both of these computers, I'm having an esthetic problem. Any windows which are not maximized, but which are "supposed" to open in a corner (lower left, upper right, etc.) instead open with an offset from the edge of the display.

    I first noticed this when I upgraded the Toshiba to Windows 10 a few years ago, and thought maybe it was just that device. However, I performed a clean install of Windows 10 Pro a couple of months ago on the Dell, and I have the exact same issue.

    I like to have my Thunderbird open in the lower left corner of my display, and to have Explorer windows open more or less tiled. When I was running Windows 7 on the Dell, ShellFolderFix allowed me to set up my desktop as I wanted it. Now, however, ShellFolderFix only works for a little while. I don't remember whether I ever used that on the Toshiba.

    When I set up Thunderbird on the Dell, I set the window location to the lower left corner. When I close, then re-open Thunderbird, Windows 10 offsets the left and bottom edges of the window from the left and bottom edges of the desktop. Similar offsets occur if I "train" Explorer windows to open in corners, regardless of which corner I use. Invariably, when the window is re-opened, if ShellFolderFix is not running, the window is offset a small amount from the edge of the desktop.

    This drives me crazy.

    Is there some reason this is happening? Can it be fixed?

    Interestingly, my Creo window opens in the upper left corner, like it's supposed to. But I didn't tell Creo where it's supposed to open. It's a default location.

    Thanks!
