    virtual desktop question

    Hi all,
    I just got a new Dell SPX 15 with Win 10. I'm liking it so far, but when one thing bothers me and I can't figure out how to turn it off. When I have any window open on my desktop and I grab it by the title bar to move the window a little "virtual desktop" appears next to my cursor, It's divided up into six different grids. If my cursor should happen into one of those grids and I let off the mouse the window snaps to that part of the screen. I'd love to be able to turn this off but can't figure out how. I've attached a pic in case I wasn't clear in my description. If anyone has any ideas, I'd be grateful.

    That is not a native Windows feature or tool. I got one similar tool when installing drivers for an external display, in your case you should search for that feature in the Dell's pre-installed OEM software.

    Searching this I found following piece of advice in a few seconds at New XPS15 - how to turn off awful window snap menu - Windows 10 - Software Operating Systems - Dell Community
    Here's the fix. Run the "Dell PremierColor" app. Click "Advanced" in the upper right. Then on the left panel, click "Display Splitter". Unckeck the "Display Splitter on" box.
