XE8 palettes and toolbars problem in Windows 10

I have a IDE problem in Delphi XE8 with Windows 10. The problem is that every time I pick to open a left minimized palette, when it expands to the rightand later collades to the left, it leaves traces at screen. The traces never disappear, and I can't see my form. I have to minimize the IDE and maximice it to see the form without the trace of the palette.

The problem is only with Windows 10. There was no problem with my old Windows 7. I have testet also the problem in my home computer with Windows 10. I have "Rad Studio XE8 Enterprise" without subscription, with Update 1.

I suggest you just pin the palette window so it stays expanded all the
time. That should work around the problem. I have no idea what the root
cause may be, though.

I can not pin the palette, because the problem is with all the palettes. I usually have a bar with some palettes minimized to the left (Project manager, Structure, Tool palette, and message window), one fixed pin palette (object inspector) at the middle, and the code/form window at the right. If i pin all the minimized palettes i would loose two much space for the code/form windows.

Have you considered getting a second monitor? That would allow you to
undock the palette windows from the IDE form and place them on the
second monitor, so the first one can be fully used for the editor/form
designer. I use this kind of setup routinely now and it work well for
me.
