Disable Aero Snap in Windows 7

Anyone familiar with Windows 7 knows that if you drag a window to either the top or sides of your screen it’ll “snap” into place and expand accordingly.

…but what if you don’t want it to snap? What if you think it’s annoying?

Let’s learn how to disable Aero Snap in Windows 7, then!

Just type “Ease of Access” into your search box. (Located directly above when you click your Start button)

In the resulting window, scroll all the way to the bottom and click “Make it easier to focus on tasks”.


Now scroll down in this window and under the “Make it easier to manage windows” heading put a check mark next to “Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen” and click OK.


Now Aero Snap is disabled! If you ever want to turn it back on, then just repeat the above steps and un-check the box!

Less snapping; it’s a good thing!
