    hello.

    i don't really know how to ask my question in english, i hope you will understand what i say :)

    i don't find how i can configure windows 7 to see only the border of the windows (not the inside) when i am moving a windows.... how can i do ?

    another thing i hate in windows 7 is that when i move a wondows to close to the border of the screen it become very big and take the half of the screen. Do you know how to disable this horrible feature ?

    thank you for your help my friends...

    Ok, found it.

    M$ call that "Snap".

    So just press F1 and search for "How do I turn Snap on or off"

    To turn Snap on or off:
    1. Open Ease of Access Center.

    2. Under Explore all settings, click Make the mouse easier to use.

    3. Under Make it easier to manage windows, do one of the following:

    - To turn Snap off, select the Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen check box.

    - To turn Snap on, clear the Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen check box.

    4. Click OK.

    for your 1st question, i think you are talking about the "show windows contents while dragging" option.

    I'm 99.999% sure that's what parisien was looking for.

    I thought it might be, but I was wrong.
    Go to control panel and open performance information and tools. On the left hand pane click on adjust visual effects.
    You can also get there with Right click on Computer, select Properties. From there select Advanced System Settings. There click Settings under Performance.

    Then uncheck "Show windows contents while dragging".
