  1. Resized and moved windows after sleep or shutdown


    New desktop computer, so had to go with Windows 10 Professional, upgraded from Win 7 Pro, and I hate 10 more every day.


    Every time the computer goes to sleep or is shut down, my windows are all re-sized and moved to the top left corner of the screen. This is indescribably annoying, and a huge waste of time.


    I'm using a ViewSonic 1080p monitor with a HDMI cable, the same monitor as before with Win 7. I've already gone to Control Panel and turned off the "Snap", which is really the only solution I've been able to find. I also uninstalled the video driver and re-booted, which was another suggestion I saw. So far, nothing has worked. To avoid frustration, I don't allow the PC to go to sleep, which is a waste of energy. There has to be a better way.

    :)

    Hi Bob,

    There may be several reasons why you are unable to resize or move applications after installing an update. To better assist you with your concern, we would like you to answer the questions below:

    • Does it happen only on one application?

    • Press Windows key +X, select
      Control panel

      Large icons
    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the
      view all option on the left panel

    Keeps resizing after sleep

    Hopefully I can explain this properly.
    I'm having an issue with video. Ever since i upgraded to a gtx 660 ti when returning from sleep the resolution seems to change.
    I keep having to "resize" the desktop slightly.
    Its fine returning from games, or anything else seems to be fine...but everytime my monitor goes into sleep and I wake it, the screen is wrong. Either it will have black bars all the way around the screen, or it will be too large for the screen.
    Its easily fixed using the resize button in the nvidia control panel, but its getting old.

    The system was freshly formatted when I upgraded.
    I've tried uninstalling drivers and re-installing using the latest versions to no avail.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
