How can the split screen divider be removed, please?

When not using a Desktop workspace/area, I can see the vertical divider over the Desktop, but this isn't serving any purpose and is therefore distracting.

See screenshot:


MacBook Air 11" 2015, 1366 x 768 screen, 8Gb RAM, 2.2 Ghz i7, 500Gb SSD, macOS mojave 10.14.2

Additional screenshots:

Notifications pop-up goes over the split divider (Answering question in comments from @bmike )

On opening e.g. Chrome, this goes on top of the divider, but the divider can then be dragged over the window as shown.

  • Couple of side questions that may not be relevant. When you click the Today/Notificiations icon (three horizontal lines - top right of menu bar) does that move over or affect the split? How many spaces exist in Mission Control? If you go to the log in window, how many other users are logged in and does the split resume when you arrive back? If you choose log out, do you save apps and does changing that and logging out / in help? (basically I know this has gotten corrupt for you - trying to figure where the corruption is and what resets it) – bmike Jan 16 '19 at 12:42
  • 1) notifications move over split 2) 9 spaces in mission control 3) 1 user logged in 4) split resumes when arrive back 5) no, don't save apps, close them. Thanks for your troubleshooting so far... – therobyouknow Jan 16 '19 at 12:58
  • Ugh - so it's going to be the finder saved application state / window server. – bmike Jan 16 '19 at 13:35
