    Okay this is hard to describe - I have a tiny version of whatever is on my monitor screen that I can't get rid of. If I hit the X to close it, the normal version of what is on the screen disappears too! :shakefist: No, I cannot drag the window to the top of the screen. So the whole view of my pages is cut off on the bottom - because the entire thing is shifted downward because of the tiny replica I can't get rid of. Obviously I hit a wrong key somewhere but now I can't get back to the way it was. Any thoughts?

    Aside from "Windows 10 sucks"? Sorry, can't help you.

    I never had a problem with Windows 10 once I got used to it. This has never happened before. I can select "duplicate" and make yet another tiny replica of what's on my screen....but there is no "remove duplicate" option! :shakefist:

    Can you screen capture it with the "printscreen", button so we can see what's going on?

    Good news! I ham-fisted my way through clicking anything and everything until it went away. No I am not risking it by trying to replicate the scenario again.
