    Windows 7 maximizes windows while dragging to the top part of the screen

    My PC is currently running on Windows 7 and there is no hardware issue with the system. But when I drag the window of any program to the top part, the system will maximize the window automatically. It seems that the auto-expand option is enabled on the system. How can I turn off this option?

    First of all, locate the ‘Start’ button from the left side of the desktop and make a single click on it. When you can view the start menu, look for the ‘Control Panel’ option. The moment you catch the sight of that option, click on it for a single time. You can then find ‘Ease of Access’ link on the ‘Control Panel’ window. Click on it and hit the ‘Ease of Access Center’ option. The next step required is to click the ‘Make the mouse easier to use’ option. This will bring up “Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen” label on the screen along with a checkbox. Select that checkbox with a single click.
