    How do I turn off the auto-fullscreen function for windows in windows 7?

    Really like windows 7 except from some stuffs that I never get used to...
    Please if anyone knows where I could turn it off in any settings for windows 7. Tried to search for it on google but didn't found what I was looking for. :redface:

    I should ask what do you mean by the auto fullscreen function?
    But perhaps you mean, when you drag a window to the edge of the screen, it expands?
    If so, open the ease of access centre.
    Click "Make the mouse easier to use"
    Click the second option " Prevent windows from automatically......etc)
    Apply, then log off or restart.

    I've done this but the windows continue to expand. Do I have to do this every time I open a window? Is there a way to permanently prevent the window from going full screen? Very frustrating!
