Windows 7: Window maximizes by dragging to top.

Darn. I used the fix, Shawn, but although it accepted it and I was able to use it for a short while, It would not keep the saved setting. Any ideas?

I did not know about Aero Snap when I posted the question. I had only seen the behavior on the top because I realized the mouse pointer has to reach the edge of the display before it activates and the only time I reached that point was when moving the window up.

Chappy posted a keyboard shortcut for maximizing vertical. Win+shift+up arrow, so I will probably use that. The Win+ right or left or up or down arrows also work well. But it doesn't work if the Aero Snap is turned off.

Thank folks

Dave,

Strange, have you updated anything since then that may have reset it to back on?

Dave,

You might see if a System Restore may help.

I have tried it on a brand new installation (Technet) No change! Don't waste too much time on it I can live.
