Windows11 21H2 on MS Surface Pro 6. All of a sudden when placing cursor at top of site page any opened program/page, and then pushing up, the page doesn't "float" as ithad been doing. Furthermore, when placing cursor on the middle box on the to right, I get 4 choices of how the page is sized. I don't want any of this, all I want is to be able to make the page float as it previously had.

OK, went to Snap Settings, where everything was On. As far as I know, I had never touched any of the settings there. Furthermore, a little additional description of the problem. Whether window is opened full sized or reduced in size and snapped to top of screen, grabbing the title bar fails to move the window?

EDIT: Ah, I think I found a clue to the problem. I am using Logitech's Options (Logi Options+ Beta - Software App for Logitech Devices) so that I can use just one Logitech mouse between two computers. A great program. When Options is is ON, I can manipulate the windows on the Surface as wanted (window float and can be moved by selecting/holding the title bar). However, when just using Surface's cursor (Options can be ON or OFF), the windows can't be moved. Interestingly, both computers are Windows 11 (21H2), with the switch from W10 to 11 done on Surface first about two weeks ago, while the desktop was still W10...with no problems moving the windows using either Option or the Surface's cursor. It could be coincidental, but I think the problem with the Surface may have arose when I just moved the desktop from W10 to W11??? But, then again, how would the change in the desktop affect a change in the Surface when only using the Surface's cursor? Nonetheless, the bottom line is that when just using the Surface;s cursor, double tapping the window title bar will make the window smaller and unsnap it, but neither a full winow, nor the snapped window can be moved by the Surface cursor...whereas with Options functioning, the Logi mouse can fully function all the time on the Surface??? Crazy, no?

Does it work?
Well..., hope it does!
On my trackpad: Place cursor over an empty window title bar>press the normal area of the trackpad til it clicks, don't release pressure>move finger to move window>release.

Strange! You should be able to Press/Click/Move!
Agreed. If I press on title bar area and double click, the full window unsnaps and minimizes, but the cursor can't move it. Double clicking on the minimized window snaps it back to full size...and that is all that I can do using the Surface's cursor.
Well..., hope it does!

Got it to work, but not quite your suggestion. Although, your suggestion did lead me to the solution. But, first I have to say something did change. Previously, when things worked, all I had to do to move a window was to single click on the title bar and drag. SOLUTION: However, I now have to hold a corner down, place cursor over title bar area and drag. Still strange. When i tried your suggestion, I'd have to really press hard to get the click and then dragging was very jumpy while pressing hard.Could be a problem recently developed with the touch pad???

This is embarressing as the solution to the problem was an easy fix. Most sorry for the run around and I do appreciate your help. Solution was to go to Touchpad settings and under Taps, turn on "Tap twice and drag to multi-select.
