I have a really large monitor, so no need for a second one. However, I would like to use Premier Elements 2019 on half my monitor while watching Netflix or something on the other half. I try to use the "maximize" button in the top right corner to remove the program from full screen, but it does nothing. I try to use the cursor along the edges to drag it smaller. That does nothing. What am I missing? Why can't I put the program on only half my screen?
Of course you can.
If you select the non-full-screen option for the program, you can drag on its corners to size it however large you'd like.
I tried that. It doesn't work.
Try grabbing a side and the bottom. The corners are hard to grab. If it doesn't work, it is a computer or graphics issue. Premiere Elements is not the problem.
Move the entire Elements UI first by grabbing the top bar.
When UI is loose from the edge then grab a corner.
