When I open Logos, it opens maximized, but on my dual screen computer, the window is "shifted" to the right slightly, causing the right window border to hang over onto the second monitor and the left window border to show when it shouldn't.  Once I minimize and then re-maximize or restore and then re-maximize it, the problem goes away.  It is a minor issue, but somewhat annoying.  Take a look at the below screenshots and note both the left and right sides of the Logos window:

EDIT: Looking at it more closely, I notice that not only is it shifted to the right, but it is also shifted down slightly.  Note that you can see the top border and that the bottom status bar is slightly cut off.

EDIT 2: Two more observations...first, when it opens, it truly is maximized because I'm not able to grab any of the borders that are showing in order to try to resize the window.  Second, I disabled my second monitor as a test and the problem doesn't occur with only one monitor on the same computer...it opens correctly maximized in that scenario.

How it opens:

Correctly maximized (how it should open):

Hmm.  This doesn't really help you except to make you more frustrated: But it works for me.  

I have three monitors and do not experience this problem.  Thus I ponder if it could be some peculiarity of your system.  First normal question: Are your video drivers up to date?

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

I have the same problem, and I'm only using only my laptop screen. It's really annoying. 


I searched my old post about this (which I forgot about, until now) - click here. The final reply might prove to be helpful. 

**edit - again**

A couple weeks ago I changed my display settings to improve performance, which removed the Aero features (Win7). That must have been when I started getting this hiccup with the window again. I just went back in a changed my display settings to use the Aero features, then I opened Logos, reset the window to max., closed Logos, and re-opened Logos. Problem solved. 

Does all that makes sense?

Sorry, I hadn't been back on the forum since posting this.  This indeed seems to be the issue (Aero Snap maximize vs Using the Maximize Button).  When I maximized using the button instead of using Aero Snap, then closed Logos and re-opened, it opened just fine. Thanks!
