  1. Program will only maximize to main screen???


    I have tried nearly everything I can think of, or have heard over the years to fix this. I have a program that monitors my security cameras... It will only maximize or go fullscreen on my main monitor. I have a triple monitor setup and want it to do that on either of the side monitors.

    Have any of you ever ran across a PITA program that was like this? If so, did you figure out a way to make it maximize to a secondary monitor?

    :)

  3. Windows won't maximize

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable to maximize/minimize the programs in Windows 10, we will help you to resolve this issue.

    Kindly let us know with the following information:

    • Is this issue specific to any applications/programs?
    • Were you able to see the maximize, minimize and close icons?
    • Have you tried to perform these using different user account?

    This issue might be due to corrupted/ missing system files.

    I suggest you to run System File Checker and check if it helps:

    Method 1: Run the SFC.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer.

    • Now check for the issue.

    Hope this information is helpful. Kindly update the status of the issue. We will be happy to assist you.
