Windows 7: Disable Windows double click = full screen window?

Disable Windows double click = full screen window?

Hi,

Forgive me if my searches weren't up to speed to find the answer to this... I tried, I really did.

I just had to get a new system and it has Windows 7 Pro - X64. Now it seems like a double click in a window header bar, all windows, end up with a full screen window. Driving me nuts! (short trip )

I've searched all over and can only find the doc. on disabling the full screen snap when moving a window off screen or to the top.

Any idea how to disable the bar-double click behavior?

Thanks, and again I apologize if my search was crud.

Double-clicking the title bar to maximize a window has been a behavior since at least Windows 95. I think it cannot be disabled. You may need to change your approach.

I've been using double-click to maximize Windows since at least Windows 98. I used it in Windows XP as well.

ok - thanks - not doubting you at all. I possibly had the double click speed set a bit lower on my old system so it wasn't as touchy.

Oh, that might be a good alternative solution.

Did some checking, I agree with everyone, I went to Microsoft help forum, This option cannot be changed. This option has been like this since Windows 95 according to some. Again, Just hange your approach.

I think it is handy the way it works. If you don't like it just don't double click on it.

yeah, all of the searches I did said it couldn't be changed. But having been a software engineer/tester for 38 years, I don't necessarily believe that someone, somewhere couldn't come up with a sneaky solution. ;-)

I checked the speed setting for the double click and it was cranked all the way up so it was being VERY touchy. Just toned that down a bit and no problem now.

Thanks all

Nice! I'm glad that it was just the double click speed.
