Window jumps back to screen when mouse over title bar

November 7, 2012 at 04:21:22
Specs: Windows 7
I use to move some windows (e.g. Skype chats) a bit out of screen, so that I can close them just by moving mouse cursor to the upper right corner without having to look there.

However, in Windows 7 when I move mouse cursor over a title bar of such a window and touch the edge of the screen, the window jumps back to the screen.

Please advise how I can turn it off, thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, not. The option "Prevent Windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen" is already turned on.

The problem is not that the window maximizes or arranges when moved to the edge of the screen, but that if the title bar is located a bit out of screen (but still visible), and I touch the edge of the screen with a mouse pointer while it is located inside the half-hidden title bar, the window moves so that it becomes fully on-screen.

I remember that the same thing happened on XP, and I solved it changing some parameter in registry, but I don't remember it's name and can't find the answer in internet anymore.

I suspect it can be a Lenovo-specific feature, but not sure about that,

Thanks a lot.

In Windows 7 when a window is dragged to the edge of the screen it will automatically fill half the screen this is to enable a second window to be dragged to the opposite side... it too will fill half the screen. This allows you to move files easily between windows and the close button will be visible in both windows. To restore the window to its normal size simply double click in the blue bar at the top of each window.
