    FGU will not stretch across two monitors anymore

    I used to not have a problem. I would have it in restore down mode and stretch it from the right side of one screen to half way on the other screen with no problems. Now when I let it go it snaps back to the other screen. Even when I move the whole window to cover both screens without an edge touching it snaps over to the screen with 50+% of the window. FG Classic still allows me to do it the way I want to do it. No other programs are doing this. It only recently started doing it. I turned off the snap to screen setting under multitasking settings and it still does this. I am at a loss. Any one have any ideas?

    I have a player who is able to stretch FGU with no issues. Edge snapping was going to be my suggestion, but you already did that. Anything with your graphic card settings?

    It used to work fine. I just did a system restore and checked what programs would be affected by it and one was a Dell Display Manager update. After the restore it's back now. I guess I won't be updating the Dell Display Manager anymore.

    It was weird that it was only affecting FGU though. All other windows would stretch including Classic.

    I ran a game last night and had no issues stretching FGU across 2 monitors.

    I stretched but it always looks janky. Especially when the map is cleaved in half. I honestly hate it.

    You should just put the map on one monitor then Probably you use the background mode? Do not use that mode, then you canf reely move the map around to where it should be

    This is interesting. I'm having a similar experience with Discord audio, but I haven't narrowed it down to a Dell update. The app just stopped putting out audio to my speakers while no other audio on my machine stopped working. I came close to building my own back before I bought my current rig at a pretty good discount. Might have been a bad decision.

    Oh. I have a hand built CPU but the monitors are Dell.
