    • I can reproduce it too. Seems this issue happens in Groove Music when you open ‘Now Playing’ and push full screen button then escape from full screen.

    • Yes, this happens to me in Edge as well as the YouTube app, MyTube!

      Please fix. Really annoying.

    • Same here. Please fix it

    • Yes same here, most time with YouTube fullscreen videos and escape key to restore to normal size video :(

      Please fix it.

    • Hey all, can confirm that this bug is fixed with the latest Slow release insider build. So it’ll come eventually for anyone not on the insider builds, just hang tight :)

    • I have the same issue, although not while watching YouTube, but other video players.

    • I am having the same issue, I love Edge and want to use it as my default browser instead of chrome or Firefox so please fix this issue.

    • Please FIX THIS, Microsoft! It is not 30 August 2016 and this is STILL an active bug!

      After I exit the full screen on YouTube videos. The Edge browser is not maximized any more as it was before I hit that full screen button on YouTube!

    • All updates are installed on my Windows by the was, so this is the last version of Edge!

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We are pleased to report this feature is fixed in Edge 14393 and is available in our latest public stable build.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team

    • This is not fixed. The Edge window is vertically touching the top and bottom of the screen, but the height of Edge window will be shortened after getting out of YouTube full screen.

    • i’ve got the same issue in google chrome
