Windows 7: Delayed "Release" of Window After Moving ???

Delayed "Release" of Window After Moving ???

After moving a window (drag & drop) the window is not being released when I lift my finger from the touchpad.It seems to be okay if I use the the touchpad buttons.But,when I double click the touchpad with my finger & proceed to drag & drop the window where I want it,I then seem to have to single left click in order for the window to be released instead of just lifting my finger off of the touchpad.

I'd swear on my own pc that I changed some setting to change this behavior.But,for the life of me,I cannot recall how I managed this.Please,if anyone knows anything about how to change this setting,please let me know.As always,any/all help much appreciated.Thanks.

I suppose also that I should mention-the window DOES release after I release my finger from the touchpad.It's just that it's release seems to be delayed ???

Problem solved ! After a bit more "research" I realized what I was dealing with was indeed a touchpad issue.The Dell touchpad has a setting called "Draglock". I turned that setting off (unchecked it) and all is fine now !

Hey, whats up? New here. Right now my hard drive is split up into two partitions: System and Storage. However, when installing 7, for some odd reason, the installer put the boot manager (I think it is the boot manager) on my Storage partition, when I want it on the System partition. Is there a...

Windows latest build - 7061 "Almost" out in the wild RC1 delayed to May
