    I don't believe any of that applies. This is the feature in question:
    (NSFW background I spose)


    It used to NEVER do it in Windows 7 between the two monitors ie: [ | ] at the middle line. Only top / bottom / sides. Now it does it in between in Windows 10 so everytime I wanna move something over with low sensitivity on mouse it gets stuck. And it's quite frankly enough to drive you crazy.

    All you can do is completely disable it, so top/sides (usually used top) doesn't work either, meaning I have to double click to make a window full screen. When you do that a few 100 times a day, a minor inconvenience turns into a hassle. As with a ton of things in Windows 10. Not impressed :/

    Appreciate the reply,

    Sticky edges would be for when a window gets stuck or delayed before crossing over to the next display. Disabling sticky edges may also stop it from snapping when crossing over.

    If yo like, try step 2 below to see if it may help.

    Yes I already tried your suggestion prior to posting, otherwise I wouldn't trouble you
    It did nothing, it still latches on to the side of the screen between monitors, not just up/sides.

    I was thinking of 'MouseMonitorEscapeSpeed', but I have no way of testing it at the moment.
    Maybe Shawn can shed some light on it.

    Hey Edwin,

    Yeah, that's what the sticky edges tutorial was for.

    That's to bad it didn't help. Just to verify, but did you restart the computer afterwards to apply?

    EDIT:

    I just tested on my system, and no luck either.

    It seems, you'll either need to turn off Aero Snap, or speed up crossing the display.

    Yes. Put it on standard settings under screen settings multitasking (which is everything on). Ran the regedit. Rebooted PC. Tried moving window, same as picture posted. This is just a long list of issues I've had since I upgraded to Windows 10, which saddens me if this is the inevitable future.

    Windows 10 in 2 weeks:
    • 3 BSOD (Kernel driver error)
    • 1 Freeze (literally 5 minutes ago, when opening a youtube link everything just froze and had to reboot.)
    • Dragging window from one monitor to the other as described in this thread.
    • Not being able to see my Task Bar when main monitor running in fullscreen no border windowed mode, and clicking on 2nd monitor. Described in this thread

    Windows 7 for 4 years:
    • Nothing.


    This is why I'm a little discouraged right now. I've been so happy with Windows 7, and with my realisation that so far every 2nd OS from Microsoft has been pretty garbage, I was hoping skipping 8 would be my saving grace. So far I'm sad .

    It's things like this that make people not want to change OS. They have their set ways and they're using your OS for a reason. It's user friendly. All these errors and things not working, for the common user is just a hassle not worth dealing with. I think they should make a more stable OS before pressuring everyone into upgrading with their "Updates" popping up 24/7, and "Only revert for 1 month" policy. It feels like gun policy.

    Thanks,

    Try this out just for giggles:
    Grab your window as far on the left as possible when moving it to a monitor on the right, (or vise versa), and see if that does anything to speed up the 'crossover'.

    Afraid not, same result regardless of how or where you grab it. For some reason it's hard-coded into Windows 10 that moving things between monitors makes things sticky.

    Is there any way to actually get hold of Microsoft representatives, or is that banging your head against a wall? I tried calling the local Microsoft hotline here in Denmark, but that was like talking to a wall that knew nothing about Windows I couldn't google in 30 sec~. I wish it wasn't all down to how many upvotes a thing got on Reddit.

    Cheers,
