Cannot find a minimize (-) or just drag the full screen of Lightroom CC from one screen to the next. I'm using Lightroom CC version: 2.2.1 [ 20190312-1546-e438717 ] (Mar 13 2019). It's really a nuisance and a problem.

Greetings rogsonl, I have a few questions about your setup. 

  • Are you Mac or Windows? 
  • What is the current version number of your operating system? 
  • Are you using a mouse, tablet, trackpad or other to drag
  • Describe your monitor (s) configration?
Did this work previously and just quit working or has it never worked as you are trying to  get it to work?

Win 10 Enterprise It doesn't state which version, like the Surface book (which works does).

Use a Kensington ball,

Multiple displays: 32" Dell, 27" HP

I got the GEForce Experience _v3.18.0.94 installed. Nothing changed.

It had been working or you would have heard from me before since it is really annoying to work around.

Both of my computers use NVIDIA hardware. The one on the desktop is GeForce GTX 1060 3GB. The one on the Surface book is 2GB. Both are just updated. The Book works, the Desktop does not.

rogsonl,

The closest thing I have is a GTX970 with a 34 inch Dell display and an HP ZR24. I am not able to reproduce what you are seeing.  I am able to minimize on either screen whether windowed or full screen. It works from a mouse or a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet. 

In addition to video driver settings you might consider resetting your preferences for Lightroom on the Desktop. 

A Preference File will survive a Lightroom uninstall/reinstall. Sometimes weird behavior is corrected/cured by resetting the preferences. 

Reset Procedure:

1. Close Lightroom.
2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom. 
3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
4. Close Lightroom.
5. Restart Lightroom.

Does the behavior continue after resetting the preferences?
