    Dragging maximized window to lower monitor loses maxmization


    My two monitors are mounted vertically, A on the top, B on the bottom. When I drag a maximized window from B to A, it auto-maximizes on A if I release the drag right at the top of the monitor due to SNAP's "arrange windows automatically when dragged to top of screen". But there seems to be NO WAY to drag a maximized window from A to B. It loses its maximized state no matter what. I fear this inability is a feature not a bug! Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

    :)

  2. Would like to reconfigure window dragging to drag when maximized.


    Hello folks. I have a new install of W10 and would like to set up the window dragging to drag when the window is maximized. It was the default setting on W7 but not W10.

    In W7, not only could I drag the window while it was maximized, if I just grabbed the title bar and moved it down a smidge, the window would un-maximize (as if I'd double clicked the title bar), I could also touch the mouse pointer to the top of the monitor I was dragging it to, and the window would maximize. If I didn't touch the top of the monitor, the window would stay where I placed it and not resize.

    W10, I cannot drag a maximized window, nor will it maximize if I touch the top of the monitor with the mouse pointer while I'm dragging.

    Can I change settings in W10 to make window dragging behave like it did in W7?

    Thank you.
