Hello B, thanks for joining the Intel Community.
Regarding your issue I suggest to contact the system manufacturer since this behavior could be limited by them.
We recommend customer to use the drivers provided by the system manufacturer, because our drivers are generic.
OEMs make a lot of customizations to the drivers and the installation of Intel’s drivers could overwrite those customizations. Therefore it will affect your system.
Hi, i register to say I have same problem
My tablet is 7" and all windows are maximized
I contacted the maker of the tablets, and they say is Intel drivers faults, and they cant do nothing to solve this issue
My wife have a 7" windows 8.1 tablet, different maker, and same problem
I uninstall intel drivers, and left default windows drivers, all windows open normal, not maximized
After have the problem, in two different tablets, different maker and test default driver, i can totally confirm is a intel feature that cause the problem
Please, someone from Intel give a answer how to disable the feature because is give me a lot of trouble with software
Thanks!!! (sorry my english)
Mine is Winbook TW700. The manufacturer does not provide a Intel driver and allows Windows 8.1 to install the Intel driver. I used the Intel driver finder utility which installed the latest driver and so far all drivers exhibit the same feature. So it definitely in the Intel drivers. Be nice if a driver developer would chime in to look into this issue.
Just to test a theory I installed a fresh copy of windows 8.1 (not OEM) and used the latest Intel drivers and the issue shows here also. So it's not an OEM issue as the installed copy was straight from Microsoft and used video driver straight from Intel.
Hi, any new news?
Intel dont say nothing about this? or my 7" tablet will have this problem forever?
Guys, we always recommend customers to download and install the drivers provided by the system manufacture, since our drivers are generic drivers and sometimes these cannot be installed on other systems or the installation of them could overwrite their customizations and possibly change the functionality of the graphics.
No ofense, but did you read the messages we write? or this is a generic intel answer?
The system that manufacture my tablet, say is intel drivers fault, and they not provide any solution/drivers, just the intel ones. I explain in first post
The problem are in intel drivers... the intel drivers detect a 7" screen, and activate this property, maximizing all windows
Could you provide additional information on the 8" tablet? Is it made by the same manufacturer as the 7" tablet? Are all the specs otherwise the same? Could you also provide a DXdiag report for the 8" and 7" tablets?
If helps in something, i dont have a 8" tablet, but i have two tablet from same maker, one 7" and other 10"
The 10" tablet dont have any problem, the 7" have the maximize window problem
Both have same windows version, and same driver version
If can help you, i will upload the DXdiag, i cant do now, because i have my 10" tablet in my work
Absolutely the same operation on a Linx-8 (8") tablet running Windows 8.1. Tried both the "Bing" edition that came on it and the full "Professional" and problem persists.
Uninstalled the Intel HD drivers and the problem disappears (but impractical as lose screen brightness control, and sleep doesn't shut off back-light with generic driver).
This finger pointing from all parties concerned is very frustrating. I found a posting on Stack Overflow from renowned MS guy Raymond Chen saying that Windows is designed to do this on systems with 1GB of RAM. However, as the issue disappears using Microsoft's own Basic display adapter driver this can't be the whole story.
It appears to be some kind of driver/OS interaction problem. What more is there to say? I came on to post my DxDiag as I see there's a request for one from a unit that's not working properly:
Not positive I can embed a pastebin listing here, but here's a link: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=iECmkrh2
One way or another this daft behaviour has got to stop
Can we have any kind of update on this issue?
It is a reasonably big deal for us poor 7 & 8" tablet users who are stuck with Intel HD drivers. It's been 6 weeks since any update from Intel on the situation and I'm seriously considering selling the tablet on and buying something else if it can't be rectified.
I’m sorry for the delay, we're cuirrently checking with Microsoft, since this would be mostly an OS issue, we will follow up once we have more information.
... and Microsoft won't give us a reply because they say it's nothing to do with the OS and must be a driver issue...
Ok, time to eBay it I think. Seems a shame as the hardware is ok, but evidently I was expecting too much from the software.
Hi! after long time, i buy a 8" tablet, and still same problem! all windowsa are maximized... i believe was only a problem with 7" tablets....
Any answer from intel about this annoying thing?
