Windows 7 - Disable Automatic Docking, Maximizing and Resizing

By Deborah J. Sparks

Windows 7 includes a new feature that automatically docks, resizes and maximizes windows when you drag them to the screen edges.

If you find this option helpful, great. But if not, here is how to disable the option:


  1. Click the Start button > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center
  2. In the resulting window, scroll down and click on Make it easier to focus on tasks
  3. Check the box next to the Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen option
  4. Click OK to save the changes and then close the Ease of Access window
