I am experiencing a minor issue with Gnome Shell and 2 screens. I'll do my best to explain it:

Both screens work the way I like, no issues with that. But, screens appear to be few pixels to the right meaning that I can just see right edge of the screen on the left side.

The problem isn't critical, but having a fix would make it look better.

Thanks for replies already in advance,

I solved the issue by setting the position of screen on the left using xrandr (xrandr --output LVDS --pos -8x312)**
