Windows 7: Get Cursor bounce to make active window smaller

Get Cursor bounce to make active window smaller

A cpl weeks ago when we got our new Windows 7 computer, when the cursor bounced off the edge of the window, it would make that window smaller. For some reason it does not do that now. Imagine there is some setting, possibly in Control panel(tho I can't find it) that will reset that option..HELP!!& Thanx

Hi there,

I looked around in Control Panel to no avail. I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'bouncing cursor' or 'making windows smaller'... are you talking about Aero Snap? Sorry if I'm misunderstanding.

Cheers,

yes, that is the feature. Was it part of Windows 7 that was loaded on my computer when I bought it..? not sure why it worked then but now does not..I did use the WINDOWS key and right or left arrow and it does the same thing..but was nice to just bounce the mouse/cursor off the side wall and top window went half screen.
thank you

See next message..found answer
