With the Feb update, I suddenly cant seem to resize the desktop app window beyond the active screen.
Before I was able to stretch the window across 2-3 screens but now it wont allow it. I've looked into my system display settings & that doesnt seem to be the problem.
All other app windows still stretch like usual.
Update- the Power query window isn't affected by this. I'm able to stretch across multiple displays when in the editor like I always have.
I tried the latest version of Power BI Desktop and it seems to work fine for me.
same here. It started as soon as I setup the new version(2.90.782.0 64-bit )meanwhile, PQ works fine
Here's a visual representation of my dilemma. Same issue occurs for me on multiple machines running the latest update (2.90.782.0 64-bit (February 2021))
Same - really annoying. making it much harder to see the visuals.
I also checked on few PCs - the issue is of February update, probable caused by adding Search control
Yea I was thinking the same thing @bgutman.
I came here searching about this same window resizing problem with the February 2021 update and confirm that I have this same bug of unable to resize larger than the primary screen display size. I too have more than 1 display (3 actually) and like to make it wider so I can put the selection, bookmarks, visualizations and fields off to the second screen and allows more room to work on the canvas. I tried the older december version (still installed) and it works fine. Please fix soon, thx!
Posting a related issue (I think).
I work remotely via RDP, so that could also complicate resolution for me. I haven't any opportunity to verify it's related to RDP though.
Specifically, this applies to the 64-bit PBI RS Desktop versions (same issue with the latest October 2020 64-bit version):
My problem is resolved by using the 32-bit version:
... but this is not ideal, since this does not integrate with my Python and R versions (which I will not be supplementing with 32-bit, since it will undoubtedly complicate management of my overarching environment). Furthermore, I constantly get PBI errors for "running out of memory" with 32-bit.
I too can maximize/minimize, cascade and otherwise arrange, but I cannot resize the 64-bit PBI window in any way. KB shortcut workarounds do not apply to RDP sessions, so I am stuck with 32-bit until resolved. Compatibility adjustments also have no impact.
Hope this helps.
It is brutal working in Desktop being limited to a single screen. Please fix!
