[Solved]Dark strip on right side - Mint18 - Mate

Post by bobo75014 » Thu May 23, 2019 3:13 pm

Hi all,
I have a dark grey strip on the right side of the screen, as shown below.
Image
I think I've had this since I last tried dual display on the TV set.
I can put the mouse over it (as seen in the pic) but that's where the windows will stop.
The resolution is 1600×900 (which is the setting shown in Displays and Nvidia settings)

24 pixels lost in width is not a big problem, but I'd really like to solve it ! :)
Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like an extra panel, did you try right-clicking it? You should then be able to delete it.
