By dragging the border or making the window full screen

Thanks for your report. I think the first issue is an instance of bug #45458. Can you post a comment there?

As for the second issue (figure not redrawn after resizing), how did you resize the figure? By dragging the border or with the "+" button at the corner of the figure?

After a fresh Windows 10 install, and a fresh Octave 4.2.0 install it takes quite some time before the plot in the first plotting window appears after e.g. a plot(x,y) command. It looks like the "Figure 1" window is blocked (or hanging). So the window is there but the content (the plot) is not plotted.

After some time this behavior disappears, and after first plots have been made successfully, visualizing plotting becomes faster, although resizing the window now takes a lot of time. The plot is not redrawn, and one needs to use the circular arrow (redo) button to get the desired result (after some time). This behavior persists.

Windows 10 & Octave still seem to have difficulties.

I'd love to retest (even using fresh Windows 10 / Octave installs) on a patched Octave version.
