Not Exactly an Alibre issue....Window Resize annoyance

    This isnt an alibre issue but I figured someone here would probably know.
    When I Drag an application window in Windows 10 a function pops up that tries to facilitate placement of the app window when the mouse is released. (See the screen element pointed to in red below) It's a total annoyance to me. Does anyone know how to turn this flaw ...I mean Feature off.
    I have scoured Win Help and the internet and I cannot find anything....I dont know what to call this feature.
    Thanks for any help,

    Ok after a more deliberate Google, I find that this is NOT a windows function but rather a byproduct of my MSI laptops True color program.
    That sort of explains why I had trouble finding it.

    Don't you just love manufacturer bloatware! Installed a clean install of Windows on a Sony Vaio once ... I swear it ran 2-3 times faster! and was happier when Vaio Update and Windows Update stopped conflicting over installs! :(

    Simon..
    The bloatware "subsidy" is what makes a $300 windows laptop possible. :D

    Simon,
    Do you have some software that remove not essential "bloatware"? I have the CCleaner..of Piriform Ltd.

    No, I usually just take a new laptop and install a clean OEM version of windows rather than the manufacturers version of windows with all their 'unnecessary' applications in! I just download the hardware drives from the manufacturers website, but windows has most hardware drivers already in it. I do the same for graphics cards ... just download the Nvidia drivers and let windows do the rest.
