>>> Win + left arrow

But does this mean that your Emacs also sets the fullscreen parameter to
FULLHEIGHT when it processes the request?  Can you describe how Emacs
processes this request internally?

>>> M-: (frame-parameter nil 'fullscreen)   => nil
>>> M-: (set-frame-parameter nil 'fullscreen nil)
>>> The frame is "restored" to a default size.
>> Why is that bad?

I'm still too silly to understand what's going on.  Let me give you a
simple example: With emacs -Q resize your frame by dragging its borders.
Then evaluate (set-frame-parameter nil 'fullscreen nil).  Here nothing
changes.  Does anything change on your system?

So apparently Win+left does something different than "simply dragging
the frame's borders" and I yet have to understand what.  What happens
when you remove the

          ShowWindow (hwnd, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
          w32_fullscreen_rect (hwnd, f->want_fullscreen,
                               FRAME_NORMAL_PLACEMENT (f).rcNormalPosition, 
          SetWindowPos (hwnd, HWND_TOP, rect.left, rect.top,
                        rect.right - rect.left, rect.bottom - rect.top, 0);

part in w32fullscreen_hook?
