So my brother just bought a new Lenovo IdeaPad, and when setting up and using iTunes, he noticed a sort-of bug. When using the Windows "snap to edge" tool with iTunes on the right side, the snap tool places the iTunes window just a little too far to the right, resulting with the scroll bar going off the side of the monitor. I checked the display preferences and the resolution is set correctly, so what's going on here? Anyone have experience and/or a fix?

You could try clearing window size/location preferences. Very rarely does that fix window issues such as this.

It may just be the way that the iTunes window was designed. On my system it extends about 2 or 3 pixels over the center "line" when snapped to a side. I don't know why but it just does. It was probably the way they have the window set to render but who knows.

Thanks for the feedback. I told him it was probably just a bug, as I am a mac user myself but I do recognize that many people think Apple's apps made for Windows suck.

It's not that they suck but that they just aren't made as well as the Mac apps. Microsoft does the same thing (Office is a huge example).

It might be intentional, it might just be them not bothering to follow design and coding principles for each platform. We'll probably never know.

True. Although, it worked fine on his old Dell XPS with Win7/iTunes.
