Windows 7: Got dual monitor now drag and drop doesn't work

Got dual monitor now drag and drop doesn't work

So I'm used to opening my windows such as google chrome and other such programs. When I want to maximize or minimize or make it flush to the right I'm used to grabbing the title bar and just dragging it to the top or either side so it automatically sizes it but once I installed the second monitor it stopped doing that. I never knew how much I really liked that feature until I lost it and I really want it back.

Please someone help me fix this.

Also thank you for reading my post it's greatly appreciated.

Hi Michi, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The feature you are describing is called Aero Snap. You can use keyboard shortcuts to work with it, try and be surprised how easy it is.
