Windows 10 Disable Aero Snap and Shake
By Stephen Bucaro
You want to drag a window over a bit, but suddenly it goes flying to the side of your
screen. You want to drag a window up a bit, but suddenly it maximizes, covering other
windows you were using. Why does the Windows interface do what it wants to do, and
not what you want it to do?
That's caused by Aero Shake, a really bad idea by some Microsoft programmer that has
been annoying users since Windows 7. More like a system bug than a feature, it must
have been thought of by Bill Gates himself, else there wouldn't have been so much
head-bobbing to a really bad idea.
And it's enabled by default, and although you can disable it, the next time Microsoft
updates your system, it will be re-enabled again. Below are the steps to disable this
productivity crushing Windows operating system flaw.
1. In the Start menu (window icon at left-bottom of screen) select Settings,
(the gear icon near the bottom of the menu).
2. In the Windows Settings window that appears, select the System group.
3. In the left pane of the Settings window that appears, click on Multitasking.
4. In the right pane of the Multitasking screen, under Snap, just below "Arrange
windows automatically by dragging them to the sides or corners of the screen", move the
slide switch to Off. This will automatically turn off all the other slide switches
related to annoying snap affects.
Now instead of Windows doing what it wants to do, it will do what you want it to do,
albeit slowly.To give Windows a good kick in the butt you’ll need to also disable
unnecessary visual effects.
