Programs won't stay maximized after new monitor install

Recently upgraded from a Samsung 24" to a L27Q.  I'm happy with the monitor but when programs are open (Win7), it will always 'Un'-'Maximize' them after a few minutes. It makes the app just slightly smaller then full screen and you see the full border around it.   I am using the 'Classic' view setting to look like XP.  Never had this issue with the Samsung.

 

Thoughts?

Looks like I may have solved the issue. 

 

In the Nvidia control panel, there were choices for scaling the desktop.  Though I have never touched the settings, this monitor seems to like 'Full Screen' instead of 'Aspect Ratio'.

Looks like I have not solved the issue. Still doing it.

Hi arcman1!

 

Welcome to the Community,

 

Does this only happen to a certain application / programs? How about for browsers, does the same happen? If you're using the Lenovo L27q-10 Monitor, you can download the driver here,

Update us how it goes afterwards.

 

Regards,

I already had that driver.  I removed the driver, re-installed and it has not helped.

Does this only happen to a certain application / programs? How about for browsers, does the same happen? What OS are you using? Base on the specs of the monitor, it says it is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7 and you refer to this link: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/monitors-and-projectors/lcd-monitors/lenovo-l27q-10-moni....

Pretty much every program.  Browser, file manager, email etc.  Haven't noticed it with Adobe stuff.

 

Win 7.  I realized one thing did change from the Samsung.  HDMI on this one vs DVI on the Samsung.  Same video card.

Test the HDMI cable to the Samsung monitor to check if it works fine. You can also try DVI to your computer and see if the issue persist.

Turns out I was using a 'Display Port' cable.  I switched to the HDMI and it's been working fine for ten days or so.
