  1. 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.

    :)

    Enable or Disable Maximized Window Dragging in Windows 10


    The good news is that when you have drag maximized windows disabled, you'll still be able to minimize the window to then be able to drag it where you like.

    This is mostly good for when you're always dragging a maximized window by mistake somehow.

  3. in win 10, maximized window won't drag

    Hi. I turned off snap and now a maximized window on my desktop won't drag and get smaller.

    I browsed this site and did the Restorehealth in the command prompt thing, also sys scannow with no help.

    In regedit, my hkey current user control panel desktop Drag from Maximum is set to "1".

    How do I keep snap off and be able to drag maximized windows?

    Thanks
