Windows 10, multi Monitor, maximized window blank/empty space on top of screen.

Jump to solution

We have different Users with a strange behaviour - if they maximize a window tested with IE11, Acrobat, Windows Explorer, google chrome they get an empty or black / white space on top of that window.

Right clicking on the empty or black / white space on top of that window you get the context menu of the desktop. 

 

It's just when the window is maximized, you can stretch it to "full screen" by hand and its fine too. maximize > problem appears.

 

Users have dual screens

if the user signs out, and signs back in it works.

if i disconnect the user from the session and they log back in it works.

if i connect to the session with one screen it works.

CTRL+SHIFT+WIN+B and signs back in it works.

 

Problem occurs with notebook and multi-vendor desktops with ou without offboard video card.

Occurs with HD graphics:

 

Intel® HD Graphics 630

Intel® HD Graphics 530

Intel® UHD Graphics 620

Hello all, We have not been able to reproduce the issue described on this thread. Our tests were performed on the following hardware: * Intel NUCi7DNKE: Windows 10 (17763) driver 25.20.100.6577 * Lenovo T480: Windows 10 (16299) driver 23.20.16.4901 Steps followed: 1. Clean Windows 10 installation with just Chrome and Outlook 2016. 2. Connected two monitors (Acer B286HK and Acer G257HU). 3. Set both monitors in Extended display via Intel Graphics Control Panel. 4. Launch several instances of File Explorer, Chrome and Outlook 2016. 5. Maximize each window. 6. Minimize each window. 7 Move the windows to the 2nd monitor. 8. Repeated steps 5-6 several times. No issue was observed. Windows are displaying correctly. Some threads are referencing this issue and some users with non-Intel Graphics are also reporting this issue. Examples: https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/8imjva/windows_10_multi_monitor_maximized_window/ https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/windows-10-pro-missing-title-bar-and-part-of-t... This seems to be an operating system related issue that may be triggered by a particular update. If the issue persists, we recommend reporting this issue to Microsoft*. Wanner G.

The drivers you mentioned seem the versions provided by the computer manufacturers. Is the issue present in your environment with drivers from our Download Center? https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/98909/Intel-HD-Graphics-630 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/88345/Intel-HD-Graphics-530 https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/126789/Intel-UHD-Graphics-620 Have you tried with a Windows roll back?

I have been seeing the same behavior for several users. Changing the following configuration used to be a fix a while ago, but doesn't look like it is anymore:

Go to Intel Graphics Control Panel / Display / General Settings / Tick Scale Full Screen / Tick override application settings / Apply.

 

I see it all around several forums, but still no valid solution has been provided and doesn't look like a single manufacturer issue as different vendors are facing the same behavior.

AmyC,

Driver installation generates error stating not to be compatible:

 

"Error: The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Obtain the appropriate driver from the computer's manufacturer. Setup will exit.

Or

Error: This driver could not be installed on this computer. Contact the computer's manufacturer for further information".

Article ID: 000005469

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005469/graphics-drivers.html

 

 

Windows roll back is not possible.

The Intel driver dont approved for Windows 10 (1803 and 1809)?

 

*Other users have the same problem.

In that case you can try updating the driver using the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24345/Intel-Driver-Support-Assistant and also running Windows 10 updates. You will need to check with Microsoft if the specific update comes with the latest DCH driver. Version 25.20.100.6471 is supported on 9th Generation Intel® Core processors, 8th Generation Intel® Core processors, 7th Generation Intel® Core processors, 6th Generation Intel® Core and Intel® Mobile Xeon processors and related Pentium/Celeron: • Microsoft Windows* 10-64 - Fall Creators Update (1709) • Microsoft Windows* 10-64 - April 2018 Update (1803) • Microsoft Windows* 10-64 - October 2018 Update (1809) Amy C Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Using the old drvier is not a solution.

Windows update updates it frequently and we have to repeat the driver downgrade process.

Does Intel have a new driver forecast?

 

Other users persist with the problem.

We would need clear steps to reproduce the issue. Perhaps, you can record a video where we can see the steps to reproduce and the issue itself showing up. Also require the DxDiag.txt and Graphics report from a failing system in order to capture important details. In addition, is it only with multi-monitor configs? Does it have to be Extended or clone? https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005848/graphics-drivers.html Amy C Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation
