Minor dual monitor nitpick - overlapping windows

Post by BobP45 »

I use two monitors with the image browser in its own window on the left-hand monitor and the main window in the right-hand monitor, and when I exit Picture Window, both windows are maximized on their respective monitors.
When I start Picture Window again, the image browser window overlaps the main window slightly (see screen shot). I have to click the maximize button twice on the image browser window to get it into its proper maximized position on the left monitor. Just a very minor nitpick.

Thanks, Bob

This appears to be a Windows bug. I'll see if there is a workaround.

The only way I could get it to work was to convert the maximized image browser to a non-maximized window that fills the second monitor, which for most purposes is the same thing. There was also a similar issue with the main window maximized on the second monitor.
