    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.

    What are your 'Snapping' settings set to?

    Everything was turned off. I adjusted those settings and got everything working the way I like. Thank you.

    I am still relatively new to W10 and forced to run it by Etrade and their insistence that W7 is no longer appropriate for their trading platform (Etrade Pro). So I dual boot 10 along side 7 now.

    Still using the suggestions I got here last time I had a W10 machine and very appreciative of the help on this forum.

    Good day!
