Windows 7: Auto Full Screen?

Auto Full Screen?

Hi there,

I just got a new laptop which has Windows 7 and I'm a little annoyed because I can't figure things out as well as I could before. I have a nice little habit of using the screen to multitask with about 3 individual windows open but when I try to drag the windows to the corners to maximize space it goes full screen. I don't want it to go full screen! What can I do?

This is the Aero Snap feature. You can turn it off to stop that from happening though.

Aero Snap - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps,
