How do I stop windows becoming 'full screen' when move to the screen edge

Asked by David laight on 2017-11-10

The page https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/shell-windows-maximize.html describes how to make windows full screen (or full height) by moving them to the screen edges.

How to I disable this stupid annoying behaviour?

Its called window snapping. It should be an option in Ubuntu Tweak if memory serves.

I don't think ubuntu-tweak is available for 17.10, and I can't see anything about 'window snapping' in gnome-tweak-tool.
Might be in some other randomly named tool (or config file) I can't possibly know the name of.

It is a right PITA that these utilities aren't installed by default.

Or something similar to that. Whatever 17.10 can use to be configured

It is no use just telling me I need to configure it.

Use the link in that page. It has a tweak tool there. All I searched for was:

tweak app ubuntu 17.10

It was the top link.....

Can you help with this problem?
