Hello, and thanks for taking the time to answer what is hopefully a simple question!

I am getting extremely frustrated by this thing:


How do I get rid of it? Almost every time I try to adjust my window placements, I end up accidentally dragging it into this extremely poorly-positioned auto-resizing thing and then have to completely resize and reposition everything again.

Thank you very much!

Hi, I don't think this is a Windows option, but more than likely a 3rd party app is doing this.

According to [this page], it could be "Dell PremierColor", or "MSI True Color". Do you have one of those installed?

If not, try a [Clean Boot] and see if it still happens while in clean boot. If not, it was one of the programs that you disabled to do the clean boot that is causing the problem. Re-enable the programs a few at a time until you discover which program it is that is causing it. Warning: While in System Configuration, do not disable Microsoft Services. Be sure to check the box to hide all Microsoft Services before disabling the other services!.

I have MSI True Color, as far as I know. It came with my laptop. I was not aware what it really did in detail, and certainly wasn't aware it had a desktop snap feature.

Edit: I went into MSI True Color and found the setting, so it's gone! Thanks. I had no idea MSI True Color was responsible. I just figured it only affected color settings.
