    I recently experienced a weird issue with my programs' window size shrinking/reducing automatically when i leave the computer idle or waking up from screensaver. My PC is running Win7 Pro and has DUAL monitor.

    for example, i have firewall, chrome and Outlook. Outlook is maximized on the right monitor and the browsers are maximized on the left monitor. When i am using the computer, they are fine. But when I walk away and come back to it a while later, after i wake it up from screensaver, the browsers and outlook are shrinked to a small window, instead of maximized size.

    It wasn't like this before and I didn't change anything on the screensaver. I had tried to update the driver on my graphic card, but it didn't help. I have another computer with dual monitor in office and it doesn't have this issue.

    Anyone has any idea for the fix? Thanks

    Did you try rebooting the computer ? Did you install any new programs ?
