    Visual Studio 2015/17 window goes blank when moved to an external monitor

      There is a long standing issue with Visual Studio 2015/17 on laptops with switchable graphics. My laptop is Dell with the latest drivers and HD 630 (i7 7700HQ) and NVIDIA GF 1050 Ti. I have a external monitor connected via HDMI. Whenever I move the Visual Studio window to the external monitor or if I snap it to the edge to maximize/resize (the new Windows 10 feature) the Visual Studio window might go blank.

       

      According to Microsoft this is a driver issue.

       

      I haven't noticed such an issue on an older laptop with Sandy Bridge and AMD discreet switchable graphics.
