Strange Opera-menu display with maximised window

  • My Opera-menu display is strange if I maximize the window. See the picture here.

    The "O" from Opera disappears at the upper left corner of the window/screen when the menu is open and the menu field is too high.

    How can I fix this?

    The monitor scale is set to 125% with default resolution (1920x1200).
    The "display scaling on high DPI devices" for Opera is set to "by application".

  • I can't see all of the title bar on your maximized window either - and I should. Are you using an actual monitor (not the built-in screen on a laptop or all-in-one device)? Monitors should have settings for size and position of the display, to get the rest of your screen actually on the display ...

  • The monitor is ~ 1 year old (EIZO FlexScan EV2455). It is connected to my laptop. I'm using the laptop with both screens (laptop and stand alone monitor) side by side. The strange behaviour is only at the main screen (stand alone monitor). If I move the Opera window to the other monitor Operas menu behaves normal if maximised. When the Opera window is not maximised the size and position of the menu is fine/normal, on both screens.

    The upper part of the title bar of Opera - and only of this Program! - can not be seen if I maximise the window. The screen ends where the picture ends (see another picture here). The mouse can not disappear at the top. It stops where the picture ends at the top.

    I noticed that the setting to hide the upper space between tabs and window/screen when maximised, does modify nothing on both monitors if I maximise Operas window.

    For me it looks like Operas window recognises the size of the screen, but Operas menu does't recognize that the monitor scale in the MS-Windows settings was set to 125%, so the menu "thinks" in 100% monitor scale and therefore the size of the menu is too big.

    I noticed a similar misbehave with the bookmarks "favicons". See this picture. The size of Operas icon window is larger than the icon, so that the edge of the next icon can be seen at the right and bottom of this mini-window.

  • Is the vertical resolution on the monitor the same as on the built-in display? It should be possible in Windows to adjust the relative alignment of the two screens - apparently Opera believes the external monitor's screen is a few pixels below the built-in screen.

  • The build-in monitor (laptop) has the resolution 1920 x 1080 and is set to a scale of 175% for text, apps and other elements.

    The stand alone monitor has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 and is set to a scale of 125%

  • With "alignment" you mean this?

  • If I move the 1st monitor (which is not the "main" monitor) up or down it becomes worse in both directions. There in the middle, like in the picture in my last post, it is the best - means I can see most of Operas menu.

    I want to say that I'm using Opera since 2004 as my daily browser, and since 10 years with two monitors, and I never had this problem ... Can you fix it??

  • Setting the scale of the main/stand alone monitor back to 100% (as it was most of the time over the last years) does change nothing on the reported menu problem. But it resolves the mentioned favicon-display problem.

  • @ sgunhouse
    Do you think I should post the behavior above as a bug?

  • If you wish to, go ahead. Be specific that it occurs on a dual-monitor setup with different text size settings on each monitor, as I expect they won't be able to reproduce it otherwise.
