Windows 7: Disabling automatic window resizing

Disabling automatic window resizing

This is probably a simple thing to do, but maybe I missed it.

I have two monitors, each with a large screen. I often move a window from one to the other. If I place it near the top of the screen, Windows happily expands it to fill the whole screen, something I'd rather not have happen.

How do I disable this function?
