    Help getting rid of preset boxes while dragging a window


    When I drag a window it shows an outline of multiple preset gray boxes that will snap said window into place. It's real annoying because it changes the window sizes and I have to manually stretch it out again just to read something. Does anyone know how to disable this feature on Windows 10? It looks like this Click image for larger version.

    It's not a feature of Windows 10. It's a feature of Dell PremierColor (or MSI "TRUE COLOR" or another 'helpful' OEM tool with the same function). See this Solved thread with the same problem...
