Video: Disable Snap in Windows 7

Bill Detwiler shows you how the Windows 7 Snap feature works and explains how to disable it.

Software upgrades usually offer new bells and whistles for users, but of course, one person's awesome new feature is another person's really annoying problem. The new Snap feature in Windows 7 is a good example.

Snap lets you arrange an open window, including maximizing and resizing, by simply dragging and dropping it to different edges of the screen. And like many new Windows features, some people love it, and some hate it.

If you're in the "hate it" camp, you'll love this week's TR Dojo episode. I show you how to disable Windows 7 Snap feature.
