Turn Off Windows 10 Snap and Shake
By Stephen Bucaro
With the Windows 10 desktop, while dragging or resizing a window it could
suddenly change size and location, or cause other windows on your desktop
to disappear. This a gimmicky feature of Windows, called snap and
shake that first appeared with Windows version 7. It amuses people
who do not have to use Microsoft's operating system to do actual productive
work. I find it annoying.
If you are like me and need your desktop windows to do only what YOU want
them to, here's how to turn off snap and shake.
In the Start menu, select Settings. In the Settings
window that appears, click on System to open the System group.
In the System windows's left panel, select "Multitasking", then
in the right panel, under "Arrange windows automatically by dragging them to
the sides or corner of the screen", click on the radio button (round cornered
box) to set it to OFF.
Now windows will only change size and location when YOU change their size or location.
