Windows dont resize "perfectly"?

It may be a nit but I'll ask anyway - I use a Toshiba I7 PC with two external Acer 22" monitors under W7, 64 bit - all works great but when I hit the middle top upper right button (I dont know its proper name) the windows resize - but not "perfectly" - i.e., its edge shows on the adjacent monitors - anyway to tweak this or am I just too fussy??

Check your screen resolution. The fact they spill over into other monitor shouldn't happen otherwise.

If its merely a matter of windows holding size, this is a known bug in Win7 for which we are (patiently) awaiting a fix. Until then use a free utility like Autosizer to program them as you like, then keep it in SysTray at startup.

The error is only about a 64th of an inch - could that be a screen resolution setting problem??

If you resize your window smaller does it go off the other monitor, or is it the screen which is overlapping and not the window?

If screen, then check screen resolution to see if another setting solves this.
