Steps to reproduce

If you resize the Brower many times the Content in it gets stuck into the old position.
So it is like only half of the Page and you have to restart it.
This also sometimes occures if you open the Dev Tools and do the resizing.

This Issue is very annoing and happens on all my Devices so it cant be a bad Installation or the Device itself.

The Main Device where I have this Issue is an Surface Pro 2017.
I think that this issue is maybe caused, if you switch from Touch to Keyboard some times and do the Resizing.

    • I see the same issue, I think. Since I changed to a 4K monitor, it seems to happen more often. The Edge browser windows shows a thin blue edge to mark the outer bounds of the resized window, but the inner content of the window is transparent except for the region rendered before the resize.

      Even the title bar icons for minimize, maximize and close are not drawn, however if I click where these icons should be, they still seem to "work". I can close the window, but If I maximize, the full screen version still doesn’t render outside of the original size rectangle. Also when I minimize and the bring back the window, the original rendered region is drawn as a solid blue rectangle with no content and the rest of the window is still transparent.

      I can provide a dump file from this state if needed.

    • When part of the window is not rendering, if I drag the lower right corner, I can see the content in the rendered area change its layout as if the window had the larger size. So the window size information is available for layout and border drawing, but the paint / rendering is not getting the new size/

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We are already investigating this complaint, and are considering a solution for a future build of Edge. We are presently tracking this issue as a duplicate of an existing internal bug report. We look forward to additional feedback you may have on how we can improve Microsoft Edge.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team

    • Getting the same behavior on my desktop machine. Won’t be using Edge until it’s resolved. Not being able to resize a window is a MAJOR problem for a web browser.

    • I may never switch to Edge. Microsoft released a product before it was ready and they expect the end users to do their testing. Switching to Mac next year. All done with MS.
