Steps to reproduce

When windows is set to 125%, 175% and 225% scaling, there’s a white bar on the right side of the screen when using Microsoft Edge. It becomes very noticeable when playing video in full screen mode. The problem is replicable with certainty and it goes away once the computer is set to the other scaling sizes.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. After thorough testing, we are unable to reproduce this problem in Edge with the information at hand. Please update this case when you can provide these details: the video or link to the video online, a screenshot of your Windows display settings, and run dxdiag (Windows key + r and type dxdiag, enter, then click Save all Information) and attach the txt file.

  • Seeing the same issue here on a Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 2017 NP-940X5N-X01US at 1080p. At 125% windows scaling in display settings, I get the 1 pixel white bar on Edge on the right side and it’s very noticeable when playing full screen video. When I tried 124% custom scaling, the 1 pixel bar on the right side goes away, but then other windows aren’t able to scale properly.

    I do not see the issue when using Chrome to watch videos in full screen.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We have confirmed the problem, 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.

  • When would you solve this issue? I have waited for a long time, but I didn’t see any improvement in recent months. I doubt that you’re not working on it recently. This white bar is so annoying that I can’t bear to use MS Edge any more. So I had to use Chrome again. What a pity.

  • I have also this problem. It started a while ago and it’s only apering in Microsoft Edge not in other browsern.

  • Just make your scalling a multiple of ten, looks the same but without the bar (ex:130% instead of 125%)

  • Marc M: Thank you! This removed the line on both PC’s I’ve had this issue on since applying the Fall Creators Update, it was really bugging me, especially having one of the PC’s connected to the TV for videos

    The issue was on the right edge in full-screen videos in IE, Edge, Chrome and Firefox, also in Firefox even when not full-screen (just maximized, line appeared on both sides)
