Windows 7: Annoyance with remote desktop client

Annoyance with remote desktop client

I noticed something kind of annoying.. if I open MSTSC and plug in my server's name then click the options, display tab and set it to XGA and hit connect, I get the XGA sized window. However, as soon as I drag it from the upper-left corner of my monitor it goes smaller and I have to drag each side open. If I maximize to get it back to proper size, it glues itself back to the upper left corner and the process starts over again. *sigh*

Any way to stop that? In XP, you hit maximize and you get the full configured screen size then you can drag it anywhere w/o it resizing.

Figured it out. To stop that behavior, go into the control panel then Ease of Access Center. Choose "Make the keyboard easier to use" then check "Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen".
