    Windows not staying flush to left edge of screen


    When using applications, I have always relied on Windows remembering their exact position from session to session, and on Windows 7 that was no problem. On Win 10, however, there is a problem with some of the app windows that I want to leave flush to the left edge of the screen. For example, if I position an Acrobat Window in that way, then close and reopen it, it reopens swith a shift to the right by about 10-15 pixels, leaving a narrow but noticeable gap with the left edge.

    This does not happen with ALL windows -- Microsoft Word and Google Chome seem to be exempt, but most other apps are affected (in particular, Acrobat, which is an annoyance, as I use it a lot). This is a problem for me, because I do translations and so usually need to have two windows side by side, occupying all the available space on the screen. Now, I find myself always having to adjust the position of PDF documents before I can get to work.

    Any idea on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Icons won't sit flush to the left of the screen anymore since update

    I posted previously about not being able to reorganize my icons, but now I can reorganize them as long as I don't put anything in the first column. I can't drag any icon over, and if I choose the auto-align option, I can't reorganize my icons.

    I'm on a laptop with a 3200 x 1800 screen (XPS 13). Also, I have noticed my "PrtScr" button doesn't take screenshots anymore. Before the update, I would press it to take a screenshot and it would automatically upload to Onedrive but now I have to use "Ctrl
    + PrtScr" to take a screenshot and it saves onto the local pictures folder.

    I fixed it by resetting the update again. Now it works.
