i believe this is a monitor issue. you might want to, from the monitor
controls, move the screen to the left, or decrease its width.

Thanks Willy

With the button on the monitor I managed to have correct behaviour.
I also found out there is a check box to allow sliding of maximized windows.
It is in <system parameters/behaviour of windows/displacement (moving?? 
translated from french)>
