Windows 7: Display extends out of sight on right?

Display extends out of sight on right?

I can actually drag a folder or file off the display screen on the right and it will become unseen/lost. The only way to get it back is right click a blank area and drag the imaginary box along the farthest point I think is there and then click cut and then paste it back to the usable screen..
This only happens to the right side of the screen, top, bottom and left the mouse pointer stops at the correct edge. Any clues?

Hello Pinger,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

I don't know if this will work for you (I have two monitors so may ve different).

Focus the program by clicking on the icon on the taskbar, then hold the windows key and press the left arrow once or twice (or thrice ).

Yea this "feature" has been around since Windows 95.

Have you tried closing the program and see if it comes back to its original position when you re-open it?

Not sure we're on the same page, I can take a window that almost covers the main screen and drag it over to the right and it will completely disappear. Shouldn't it stop when it hits the right edge of my screen??
Your suggestions didn't work unfortunately.I can literally have files accidentally get put too far right and lose them..

No, no previous version of windows has bothered about the right side of the screen.

I have this issue also.
It has only occured in the 7RC release it was fine in all the other versions.
64bit has this problem
32bit seems to be fine.
I have tried changeing resolutions makes no difference.

Tha's what it's suppose to do and something the left side of my display does but not the right... this is the first time I've had this with any version of windows going back to Windows 3.0...
There has to be a fix for this, negates Windows 7's snap and re-size feature..
