Sorry I think it would have to be all or nothing, what window would you need to disable it on anyway?

Hi Grim,
I have a application that must keep aspect ratio,
I like to disable this aero snap which stretches my window.
besides, i like also to disable animation that when window docks to left/right/top of screen.
I found MCE on win7 disable aero snap.

Hi Shawn,

I tried these settings in the Ease of Access Center and logging off an back on and also restarting but they do not remained checked for me.

I actually found the registry entry for Aero Snap.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowArrangementActive

Aero Snap enabled 1
Aero Snap disabled 0

Setting to 0 in the registry checked it in all three places in the ease of access center and remained that way. I don't know if just the checking in the EOA not remaining checked is a problem that just I have.

aero snap - temporarily turn off?
I find the aero snap feature of windows 7 really useful, just not all the time. What I would love is for a feature where the 'snap' kicks in that I could press a key (ctrl, alt, shift something like that) that would temporarily disable snap so that I can position windows where I want. Is there...

Aero Snap question.
I am only able to snap windows to the left or right side of the screen. Dragging a window to the top maximizes it again. I thought I read somewhere that with Aero Snap you could snap to the four corners so that if you wanted you could have four windows one in each corner. I can't seem to do that....
