Q: Windows 10 - my windows resize automatically and move to top left of the screen

I just upgraded to Windows 10 the other day and everything went without a hitch except one really annoying problem. I usually keep several windows in use throughout the day. I keep them side by side at half screen width and minimize the ones I'm not using. With Windows 10, if I turn my monitor off, all these become about a quarter of the screen size and move to the top left corner. When I come back, I have to return them to their original sizes and locations. I looked all over the settings options and see no way to change this behavior. I turned off the windows snapping features, but that didn't help with this issue.
