Good day all, A question on Windows 11 -
When i click on the tab or top bar of an open window the drag it prior to resizing so i can use it, upon clicking the bar the window goes full screen - or partial on .
I haven't been this frustrated with a PC for years.

I've disabled snapping in multitasking but this doesn't help - is this something anyone else have found a fix for?

thanks :)

Could you perhaps rephrase the part in red, I don't understand what you are describing/asking?

I think I know what you mean.

If you drag a window across the desktop, and attempt to pass through the upper middle section of the screen, then the desktop suddenly switches to Snap Assist mode, even though that is not what you want/expect to happen.

It is kind of a nuisance, although it is possible to learn the new behaviour and avoid that section of the screen when dragging windows. I just drag the window over a detour route, to reach the other end of the screen. That is what I eventually concluded as I use Snap as well, when I want it to behave in that way.
