Chrome windows not maximizing to Split area in v9.4 Beta 3

Hi,

I've just updated to Beta 3 (from Beta 2), on Windows 10 Pro 10.0.17134, and noticed that Chrome application windows are no longer maximizing to the full extent of my monitor splits. Applies to both Chrome stable channel and Canary, as per the screenshots (orange desktop to highlight the gaps). All other applications seem to be unaffected (Windows Explorer, Steam, Spotify etc. are all maximizing as normal) Have tried restarting the apps, and then Windows itself, to no avail. No biggy, just thought I should report it :)

Thanks for the great app, by the way! 8)

Cheers,
Lee

Same for me, maximizing Chrome leaves margins on all sides except top.

Was it fine on beta 2, even with the new Chrome interface design refresh?

Without a doubt, for me, yes. I've had the refreshed Chrome UI for a few weeks now and it's been maximizing fully to the splits right up until yesterday - I would certainly have noticed as this environment is my daily driver. Installed Beta 3 this morning and immediately found it jarring. No other changes that I'm aware of between shutting down last night and updating first thing this morning.

On reflection, it could well be that Chrome stable updated when I shut down last night though - it's a bit clandestine like that! Either way, suggests there'd still be something to look into with that latest version, I guess?

I'm on Chrome v69 for a while and the issue only appeared today after I updated DisplayFusion from beta 2 to beta 3.

Maybe this change for chrome dev introduced the regression we're getting on chrome stable?

Ok, thanks! We'll definitely look into it further and see what's up.

I've seen the same issue with both Chrome 69 and 70. I also tried disabling the Chrome custom theme (as suggested in another thread), but with no change to behavior.

I did add the custom function mentioned in this thread - https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/split-monitor-padding-chrome/?ID=99518026-eb2b-4931-b6d4-d0f3f89d2071
which works and allows Chrome to maximize properly.

Just wanted to report back that this looks like it's been fixed in v9.4 (Release, I think) :)
Thank you!

I am experiencing a similar issue as described in this thread, the Chrome browser window isn't maximizing correctly. It's leaving a gap to the left and overlapping too far on the right. It's only an issue when my taskbar location is set to be on the left (but that's how I prefer it). I've only noticed it happening with Chrome and not other apps.

Chrome 71 (latest version, default Chrome theme). DisplayFusion Pro 9.4.

Also, I've only been using DisplayFusion for a few days.

UPDATE: I wasn't having this issue at first with 9.3c so I just now uninstalled 9.4 and reinstalled 9.3c and this issue is resolved. So, something in 9.4 is possibly causing this issue for me.

Do you need me to reinstall v9.4 first? or just send the troubleshooting info from v9.3 (which is not giving me problems)?
Dec 19, 2018  • #13

Just the troubleshooting info from 9.3 is fine, as long as your splits and taskbar configurations are the same.

Thanks! I was able to reproduce that behaviour here and we've put it on our list to fix for the next beta

I'm on the 9.4 release (non-beta), and I am still experiencing this same issue with Chrome. It appears that Chrome fails to maximize to split, leaving a buffer in whatever direction is nearest to the taskbar.

@Corundum: Is your taskbar on the left or top side of the screen?

This only happens when my taskbar is at the top.

I'm on 9.4 and it seems this problem affects my system too.
Attached a screenshot and troubleshooting info.
Hope this helps to fix it shortly, Thanks!

Seeing this in the release version of 9.4 as well. Taskbar-sized gap between the taskbar and the window, apparently only when the taskbar is at the top.

This is annoying. What's more annoying is I can't find a download of 9.3 to get rid of it. What was the point of all those betas if this basic problem gets through?

In my case, it was resolved on 9.4.2 update. Thank you.

We have just released DisplayFusion 9.4.3 and the new version should take care of this issue for you. Can you give it a try and let me know how it works for you? Thanks!

I'm still seeing a gap to the left of the Chrome browser window of about 7px. Using 9.4.3 and taskbar on the left side of screen.

Ah, I see it now. Do you have multiple monitors with different scaling values? If so, Windows requires a gap sometimes that is equal to the external invisible border size of 7px. If you use your taskbar on the bottom of the monitor do you have the same issue? Thanks!

Yes, the laptop screen is scaled at 125% and the external monitor is 100%.

When I change the taskbar to be at the bottom of my screen there is still a gap on the left side on the external monitor.

With the taskbar on the left side of the screen (which is my preference). the gap is only happening on the external monitor.

never noticed any issues with gaps until 9.4.3. seems to affect only 1 monitor and 1 split screen area (attached). The monitor with the gap issue is scaled to 125% and the others to 100%. Changing the problem monitor to 100% scaling fixes the issue. Taskbars have always been at the bottom. Anything I could try?

There isn't a way around this. The gap is there because Windows 10 has invisible window borders. If we try to send the command to size the window to the actual top-left corner of the split, Windows thinks the window is on the other monitor and applies the wrong scaling value to the window sizes we give it. The 7px gap is the workaround we had to implement to make it work properly on setups with different scaling levels

The 7px gap goes away for me when I install v9.3c.

Hey guys, just a quick update to let you know that I haven't forgotten about this. We've been swamped from the holidays but this is on my list to look into again next week.

Thanks!

Could you guys backup your settings (Settings > Options > Export) and attach them? If you could attach a fresh copy of your troubleshooting info (steps below) as well, that would be great.

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

Thanks!
