Maximized Windows

An annoying feature of windows 7 is that windows maximize automatically when I drag them around the screen. How do I turn this off?

if you check the screenshot you'll see which box needs ticking to turn the feature you mentioned off. If your unsure how to get to that page then open your control panel, click 'Ease of Access Centre' and then look for 'make my mouse easier to use'.
Hope this helps..

I complained about that in the beta but Microsoft did not listen. It is a pain and they should have not set it up that way since double clicking the title bar is easier than dragging to the top...
