    bug when resizing program windows


    (wasnt sure which thread to post this in, hope its ok)

    I've just noticed that when I resize any windows I get an outline of the window rather that the window just getting bigger/smaller, then when i release left click the window goes to that size, this didn't happen when I first installed windows 8 so I don't think it is normal


    its kind of hard to explain so here is a screenshot:

    anyone else have this small problem and does anyone know how to fix it.


    thanks for reading.

    found out how to fix it if anyone else has this problem


    Go to: Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, then click "Settings" under the Performance area. In Visual Effects, select "Show Windows Contents While Dragging." Click Apply then OK. If this is already selected then deselect it, click Apply then reselect it and click Apply again.
