    Why the floating display?

    Hi!

    Have a look at this screenshot:

    Why the floating display?-screen-shot-2017-05-26-1.35.38-pm.png

    What is the smaller display box below the main one
    that I can left-click-hold and drag around.

    Why do I need this?

    I don't have multiple screens.

    I'm working on a new MacBook:

    This causes the most annoying thing: wherever I've put
    it, when I mouse into that area my mouse disappears off-
    screen, causing me to have to mouse back up to see it.

    I hate that!

    Is there a way to turn this feature off?

    Thanks!

    Why the floating display?

    SOLVED !!

    From this reply on https://discussions.apple.com//message/31797991

    For some reason, your Mac thinks you have an external display connected to it. If you pretend along with it, select Mirror, and the mouse should stay on your desktop where it belongs.

    It's possible that resetting the NVRAM could resolve the issue: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204063, or booting into Safe Mode: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201262, or resetting the SMC: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295


    Many thanks to "tjk" over there for solving this one! :wink
