Have new HP computer p6823w. Windows 7 64-bit. Items such as control panel, documents, updates, etc stick in taskbar. When click on to open to screen, they seem to fly off page. Right click on maximize & nothing happens. Tried all restore pts (only have a few since have only had computer 5 days), but didn't help anything. Now today IE pages are going to taskbar & won't come out either. Any ideas??

I got help with this this morning.
First: Press the key with the windows icon and the letter "p" at the same time.
A panel with pictures of four computer acreens will pop up. Yours is probably set to the third picture "extend." Mine was.
Second: Just click on the first panel "computer only" and you should be set. It worked great for me.

i'm having the same problem, along with a few others. I always have Utorrent in the task bar, set to launch on startup. when i hover over the icon, it shows that its open. however, if i click on it, sometimes it does not enlarge or maximize. i tried he windows button & "P" at the same time, but its already set on 'computer only...? any other suggestions? thanx in advance

Thank you so much! That was it! I decided to try the old Myst Masterpiece game yesterday. After that I could not open Explorer. I even tried a system restore that was suggested. It was for Windows 95/98! Actually, Myst reminds of the new Pokemon Go that everyone is playing these days.

the Windows P trick worked for me as well. For some reason, some (but not all) programs would not maximize on one of my two screens.
Windows P, then selecting computer-only then going back to Extend fixed the issue.
p.s. another reason to hate all computers -- and I am an IT guy:)
