    I'm still using Snow Leopard, and this feature has been driving me crazy. Is there anyway to manually disable the feature that automatically re-sizes your windows when they touch an edge? Like when you move a window to the top of the screen/menubar and it makes it fullscreen or move it to the right and it fills up the right half of the screen, etc..

    This feature reminds me of hot cornors, which are able to be disabled, but have found no way of doing so for the window auto resizing.

    Wait, I'm confused... That's not a feature in OS X. You must be (unknowingly?) using an app such as Better Touch Tool. Try identifying what's causing this to happen, then you'll probably find the settings to let you turn it off.

    Personally, I love window snapping :p

    Ok I'm an idiot. Yeah I have tons of addons and plugins, I just figured this was a native Mac OS X feature. I went through my plugins 1 by 1 and it seems like this is a feature of HyperDock and luckly it can be turned off.

    Thanks Yumunum.
