Hello,
 
I need help fixing an issue.  I play poker on my computer.  I normally use two monitors.  I'm having an issue with a software program and I believe I've isolated the problem to the 2nd monitor.  I've completely disconnected the 2nd monitor from the computer.  I've set the Display settings to only recognize the main monitor as seen below.  The problem is, when I move sometime from my main monitor I'm still able to move it past the sides of my monitor.  
 
Does anyone know how to change this setting?  I want my computer to only recognize one monitor.  So if I try to move a application around my computer screen it wont "fall off the edge of screen"
 
Thanks in advance for any help!  Here are a few screen shots to illustrate the issue.

Hi gary :)

There's no actual "fix" to that, this is the normal behavior of windows under Windows. You can move them off the screen as much as you want. You can't fix something that isn't broken so there's no solution to your problem. If you were to move a window out of the screen by mistake, you can do the following. Move your mouse over the program icon in the taskbar, then move the mouse over the window preview and right-click on it. From there, select Maximize and it'll maximize the window in your main screen. See the screenshot below (the options are in French I know, but this shows you where I want you to click):

Aura,  Thank you so much for your reply!

 

Here is a screen shot of the actual issue I'm having.

The top of the screen is a poker table.  Below the poker table is a program called Holdem Indicator.  Normally holdem Indicator will attach to the bottom of the poker table.   For some reason the software is now leaving a gap which is causing a problem.  Ive emailed back and forth between with the holdem indicator tech team but they cannot seem to figure out the issue.  The believe its a problem with my 2nd monitor.  Any ideas?

What happens if you press on the little "clip" icon on the Holden Indicator program?

Keeps the program in from of other programs.  So if you pull a page in front of holdem indicator, holdem indicator will stay on "top"

If you use only one monitor, does the window attach itself correclty or not at all? And by that I mean completely disconnecting the second monitor.
