I recently had a PC upgrade with work. The screen resolution is exactly the same, however the handling of the application window for one of our propriety applications is handled differently by the new Dell compared with the old Lenovo.
In summary, on both laptops the application window for a particular program we use is too big to fit within the confines of the low screen real-estate (due to the low screen resolution); however on my original laptop, if I dragged the mouse cursor below or to the right (so it was at the absolute perimeter of the screen), the application's window would automatically shift up, down, left or right - revealing previously obscured user interface components.
I have tried the alt-spacebar move command to try and at least access the controls I need on the app but the application automatically snaps back. There are no configurable options within the application itself and I can see no options for the feature I need in any of the two laptops. This feature is *not* 'auto hide taskbar' - the application physically moves in the opposite direction to reveal any offscreen areas when the mouse is dragged (as if dragging it off the screen).
If anyone can shine a light on what I need to do then I will be eternally grateful!
I also cannot change the screen res to replicate a higher resolution.
