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.

    • Sorry - I can reproduce this problem at will.

      It not only affects Edge - which I do not use as a result - but also other apps that must use the same internal API. In particular I use Grover Pro podcast application. Mike W description onOct 31st is identical to my experience.

      I would add that I am using a multi-monitor setup with 4 screens, the latest Nvidia drivers, on W10 Pro 1709 16299.64 with 24GB memory. No pen or touch devices.

      Whilst I can use other browsers, my podcast app is used continuously all day every day, and there is no other app with the same excellence.

      I don’t know when this problem started happening, it was the release prior to Fall Creators probably. Just taken me rather a long time to find this place to report it.

      I repeat - It is reproduceable !!

    • I have the same issue, only on my computer with a NVidia 1070 GPU set to 4K res - the temp fix for me is a reboot (not a restart). Seems it can take days for the issue to reappear. No issues on my other two gaming rigs running at 4K with an Intel and AMD GPU. I still like Edge!!

    • I understand that there may be another issue Microsoft are aware of. But please can the status be changed from NOT REPRODUCIBLE - this is a constant issue with at least three separate applications I use. Maybe it needs to be elevated to a team beyond Edge, because the problem is more deep seated.

    • I have the same problem. This makes Edge almost unusable. Sometimes even closing Edge and opening it again does not fix it - only signing out the Windows session!
