    Hi!

    The issue have been with me since i got my SP4 in January, but i haven't bothered to think about it too much.

    The problem is that sometimes when i exit fullscreen in e.g. Youtube my Edge browser window isn't maximized anymore. It isn't even on the same place on the page as i were when i fullcreened. When i maximize though, it pops right to the place i was. Anyone have the same issue, or have a possible solution?

    I'm not a native English speaker, so if you dont understand, please ask :)

    Hello, @Eplak

    Is it possible you rotated the screen? This will change the window location.

    I tried this on my Surface Book, Windows 10, Build 14372
    - Maximized Edge Browser window
    - Began playing a YouTube video, then clicked for full screen (bottom right)
    - Escaped full screen (Escape key)
    > Edge still maximized

    It may be that you have some third party player installed, or your computer has a bug.

    I am certain that i did not rotate the screen. It happens occasionally over a timespan, then suddenly it is fixed. Today i also experienced this in other apps as well. It is the fullscreen action, not necessarily in Edge.

    Maybe Windows 10 does not update screen position information quickly enough. Does waiting a bit before switching the video to full screen mode solve the problem?
