    Disable automatic re-sizing windows while dragging a window for MSI fo


    Dragging a window to one edge of the screen a shaded window appears that will allow me to select a fractional screen snap or to re-size the window.
    If this box is touched by cursor when I simply want to translate the window, it automatically resizes the window to only what the box suggests.
    I simply want this suggestion box to be disabled, but I cannot find a way to do it. I just want this annoying auto-resizing suggestion box to go away.
    Before answering my question, please read these WARNINGS: I have tried every combination of turning snap and its features on and off. None of the "multitasking", "settings", "easier" options given by Windows 10 Home worked ever. Simply, nothing inside Microsoft or windows can remove this feature. I had a large number of chats and phone calls with bot Microsoft and MSI. They were not able to give me an advice. In the end MSI just told me: 'live with it!"
    Anybody please know how to get read of this unfortunate option?

    It's possible to disable snap altogether... but I'm guessing you don't want to do that.
    E.g. with this handy searchable tweak tool:

    For reference:
    Turn On or Off Snap Windows in Windows 10

    I've never heard of a way to disable only the translucent preview rectangle.

    I tried, it didn't work. I downloaded Winaero Tweaker, and I clicked on that "Disable Aero Snap" but I didn't know how to make this change working, and active. Nothing else asked me to save this option, or apply it to my laptop.

    I found another way, but it didn't work either: Click on windows+R, type regedit, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, go to: Desktop, and click on "Desktop". Then pick the name/application, or what ever that list contains, as follows:
    DockMoving: and convert 1 to 0, and save.
    SnapSizing: and convert 1 to 0, and save.
    Drag...: and convert 1 to 0, and save.
    Drag...: and convert 1 to 0, and save.
    DragHeight: and convert 4 to 0, and save.
    DragWidth: and convert 4 to 0, and save.

    Then logoff and login to windows 10.

    Nothing happened, no change the bad app is still there re-sizing automatically all open windows or documents, as soon as i move them a little.

    Sorry!
    Andy
    convert from 1 to 0 the followings: Also all 4 ...: first two from 1 to and the last 2 from 4 to 0

    Thanks for your reply.

    See the tutorial I linked as well.

    If you can't disable Windows Snap, that reminds me of a similar recent thread where someone found they needed to change a setting in a utility provided by their manufacturer

    There are other 3rd party utilities that provide this kind of feature too, so you need to be certain which you have active.

    I didn't know how to make this change work
    It's just a check box- that's the beauty of that program- everything is reversible.

    And there's a link to show you the details - right on its GUI.

    Thank you, Dalchina! I'll try my best to follow your advice, and I'll post the results here...

    Hi dalchina,

    The automatic re-sizing of frames in Windows 10 Home is now almost solved!
    Interesting: not completely solved, but way better!
    I wanted to let you (and everyone) know.
    The little gray box with grids inside occurring automatically every time you touch a frame/window on the desktop to move or resize it still occurs, but somehow it is always in the same place and it doesn't move with your frame when you move the frame. It is kind of frozen and it is way easier to avid it now!

    Thanks,
    andyl

    grids inside occurring automatically every time you touch a frame/window
    That description does not fit Windows Snap. With that, they only occur as a window border approaches a screen edge (e.g. corner, side) when dragging it.

    Are you perhaps using PowerToys FancyZones?
    If so there are options to change that behaviour. Please see the settings for FancyZones.

    As ever, a screenshot would help.

    dalcina,
    Thanks!
    Please look at the attached picture. It shows my problem. I don't think it is FancyZones.

    Would help me in continuation with your suggestion how to disable this?

    That's got to be a 3rd party utility.

    Here are some (some are for MAC):
    15 Tools To Split Your Monitor's Screen In Windows And macOS
    - may not be one of those.

    Suggest you look at your startups and look for anything that is unusual or prompts your memory.
    Start with the startup list in task manager.
    For more, see Autoruns (free from MS).
