Windows 7: Title bar too sensitive?

Title bar too sensitive?

A window is maximized. When I click and hold the title bar and drag it a bit, the window resizes to a smaller window.

What Windows 7 feature is this?

Initially I had trouble with this. I know I wasn't double-clicking on the title bar for it to be resizing, but it was.

Interestingly, on Windows 7 Ult RC at home, I never noticed this happening, only on Windows 7 Ent at work.

That is Aero Snap. Can be disabled. I love it, but it can be touchy.

Why are you dragging maximized windows around?

I'm starting to like it. I can see how its useful. No more double-clicks to resize a window. Plus, you can drag it back to the top and it will maximize. As mentioned, it is a bit touchy though. I accidentally dragged it to the top and it maximizes, but in my mind I didn't want it to maximize.

Users in a corp environment may need a class for these "features". Otherwise, their going to think, like I did initially, what the hell is it doing or what the hell's going on. And then support will get inundated with calls.

Aero Snap may very well be my favorite feature of 7. It is certainly frequently used - the side by side snap.

I agree, been using that snap snap side to side and sure is easier than resizing by edge grabbing. put a email window beside a web page and I can get some copy paste action going, sweet.

And, you don't have to be a redneck to use it. It just helps.

I am going out to the porch and get a beer from the fridge. brb.
