Windows 7: No more real-time window resizing & moving?

No more real-time window resizing & moving?

I noticed recently that when I try to resize or move a window, it shows a black border of what I'm resizing the window or where I'm moving the window to, instead of being able to see the window as it's moving/resizing (picture shows resizing):



I find it really annoying, and would appreciate to know how to get this back to normal? Thanks

Hi,

A few things spring to mind:

1. Have you made changes to your graphics card/drivers/settings recently?
2. Have you disabled the Aero Theme at all?

Regards,
Golden

Hello Broodyr,

In addition, double check using the tutorial below to make sure that you have the Show window contents while dragging box checked in visual effects.

Show Window Contents or Outline While Dragging

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks! I opened up the Visual Effects properties, and the option was checked, but after re-checking it, it worked. And @Golden; Yes, I actually did just upgrade my graphics card and drivers, so that probably was it. Thanks!
