Dual monitor issue - Edges

Hello!

I use my laptop with a second monitor, and I've notice that when I maximize a window, you can see the edge of the window in the other monitor. It's just a 1-2 px stripe, but it messes around with some programs like latte.

Refusing to post the output of the required "garuda-inxi" on a help request will likely result in you not receiving any help from the Garuda team. A failure to provide your system specs may also result in your thread being closed without notice, (as without this information providing assistance is often next to impossible).

Before opening a new help request, please search the Arch and Garuda Wiki's, and read any relevant sections related to your issue. Also, thoroughly search any error messages in the forum's search engine and on the web. For in depth information on how to search for answers to Linux issues effectively read the tips on the Garuda Wiki:

Please report in detail everything you have already attempted to solve your problem.

The template above should be deleted before posting your help request.

Launch System Settings, go to "display and monitor", drag the 2nd screen (screen at right) away from the first and then snap it to the right of the 1st screen. Apply changes.
