Disable Aero Snap (The Mouse Dragging Window Arranging Feature In Windows)

The Windows 7 Aero Snap is the improved window management function you can simply drag a window to the top or sides of the screen, and it will be maximized or resized to take up only half of the screen. The only problem is that some people like to drag windows partially off the screen, a very useful technique when you only need to see the edge of a window… but in Windows 7 it will resize the window to fill half the screen. So how do we disable it? Here’s a screenshot of what we’re talking about.

Disabling this feature will also disable dragging to the top of the screen, but you could turn it on or off as needed.

Disabling Mouse Window Drag Arranging
Open up Control Panel, and then go to the Ease of Access center. From there, click on 'Make the mouse easier to use.'

Next tick the check box 'Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen'.
Then click the Apply button to actually save the setting.

Later if you wish to enable the feature just go back and un-tick the check box and click apply to save.
