Why does it think it knows better than me what I want to do?

If I have minimised a window and manoeuvre it over to one side of the screen why does it make the ****ing thing full screen?

Can I change a setting for this bitch thing?


Are you using/do you ever use multiple screens? Windows often has issues with multiple screens if you use different scale settings for each screen - Citrix XenApp/Desktop is even worse.

Have you got a monitor connected to a laptop? Bet you it's a screen scaling issue.

Is this not something to do with the snap assist feature?

No, Citrix products are notorious for being unable to handle multiple screen scales.

Start > PC Settings > System > Multitasking

will show you all the snap options and allow you to disable any you don't like.

Thanks JBB that appears to have worked.

Dannotdan is right about my setup though.

Feel free to email the CEO of Citrix and ask him to fix his f*cking products.

It means it won't hurt when we drag them off the train as soon as we arrive

Banks. Never needed anything much from mine over the years, been with Santander over 20 years, have a mortgage with them as well.

Now when I need some short term help with the business as cashflow is difficult (but with a resolution within 3 weeks) will they help, will they ****! Basically until things go completely tits up they're not interested.

I went into our high street Lloyds today to withdraw some dough, only to discover that they've replaced the counters with 4 ATMs and a couple iPads that link back to their website. There's one staff there, and I told her I needed £1500 cash, to which she replied I could only take a max of £1k out, unless I went to another branch where there's still a counter.

WTF? Why even have the branch then? Move the cash machine outside and close it completely - don't act like you're still providing some sort of high street service.

I'm sorry to hear that HDO. I hope things resolve themselves and that you manage to get through this.

Good luck.
