    Hey guys,

    After updating to the newest build (10041), the Microsoft Apps (Mail, Calendar, News, etc) won't fit automatically on the screen anymore (not even if resizing/maximizing the app), so they're showed like if they were running on a 1440x900 display or so (here it's 1366x768). The other 'metro' apps, like Facebook and Windows Central are normal.
    For example (the bottom is not readable - fullscreen):
    1.png
    The options are not reachable, even if I make it fullscreen or try to resize the window.

    Does it happen with anyone else? Does someone know how to fix it?
    Thanks!

    They're fine on my device.
    What happens if you do Windows Key+<a cursor key> ? Do they snap around like they should? Can you then see the title bars?
    I think this was a known issue on this build.

    Windows Key+<a cursor key> ... Yep they snap around
    Moving and maximizing window (mail for example) to secondary monitor (with higher resolution) makes app show all of its contents as it should even if with much bigger fonts than normal...

    Gone back to 9926 that seems more reliable at the moment (also 'cause of other minor issues)...

    Windows Key+<a cursor key> is working properly.
    I agree, 9926 seems better suited for my needs, how do I go back?

    You are right! It does! What a weird bug... however, if you maximize or resize the app window, it goes wrong again. But at least is a walkaround while MSFT does something.

    Many thanks... I was about to go back to the previous build because of this.

    That's not the problem the OP says!
    This isn't the solution for the problem the OP is facing!

    My screen size 1600x900. Mordern apps are not fit in windows. Even if I resize them content is out of windows. When I go to tablet mode everything is OK, but if return back I got the same problem.

    I tried to post that topic on Windows Insider hub, but new feedback won't appear. Anyone found matching feedback there?

    ​I'll stick to tablet mode as well. 10041 was a bad bad idea so far.
