locked
windows are resized when unlocked workstation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I often have windows positioned and sized such that they span multiple monitors. When I unlock my workstation, any such window (regardless of what program it is) is automatically resized such that it is contained entirely on one display. This is an extremely annoying behavior and I've seen several people post that they have the same problem, but I haven't seen any solutions posted. One posted suggested it could be related to the graphics driver, but this issue happens on my workstation and not on my co-worker's station who is using the exact same video card and video driver version (Forceware 169.26.) This is particularly annoying with IDE's like Visual Studio and VisualDSP as I often to span those across multiple monitors due to the large number of child windows in those programs.

    Does anyone know how to stop Windows from resizing such forms?
