    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.
    Thanks

    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.
    Done!
