    Drag window to maximize/restore size

    On my win10pro workstation I'm able to drag a window to the top of the screen to maximize it.
    In the same way, I can drag it down to restore it. I really like this feature and it has become my go to way of maximizing/restoring windows.

    Now to the problem. This feature is missing on my win10home laptop. I can't remember enabling this on my win10pro workstation and I can't find any settings for it on either machine. Google gave me nothing, but I'm not quite sure how to phrase my search... Non of the result are even close.
    I don't know what the function is called and what words to use to search for it other than "drag window to top of screen to maximize it"...

    Is this a win pro feature or am I missing a check mark somewhere?
    Is this related to the "shake the window to clear the desktop"-function (whatever it's called)? That one is missing on my laptop as well...
    That shake one is not that big of a loss, but it bugs me that I can't find the settings (or the words) for it on either system.

    I would really appreciate some guidance in this matter.

    Check your settings between the two devices under Mutitasking.

    Start > Settings > System > Multitasking

    I think Snap is driving this behaviour.

    Thank you guys!
    I don't feel that bad for not realizing "snap" was the word I was looking for...

    Everything is working as it should now.
