comment Windows 7 maximized windows not draggable: how to enable?
It actually works fine for me now. It worked on the t410s (old computer) and it works on my new t420s, once I set up the system like surfasb described. My issue was that I was trying to get Skype to drag while maximized and it doesn't work that way. But standard applications that honor the win ui work fine now!

comment Is it possible to export your Netflix queue?
I just tried this in Excel 2010 and it works exactly the same. I just clicked "File / Open" and pasted the queue URL in, and answered a few simple xml questions and got my queue right in Excel. So +1 for using a spreadsheet + RSS to solve this problem.

comment Is there any benefit from installing Windows 7 64-bit when you have less than 4GB or RAM?
Thanks - I'm having plenty of problems with Win7 64bit whereas on my last computer (t410s vs now a t420s) I had very few problems and in that case I was running 32bit. Given the similarity in hardware I can't come up with any explanation except the OS version - so I'm going to wipe this machine and get onto 32bit.. Thanks for a small amount of reassurance that this may not be a bad idea..

comment Getting back the old alt-tab windows switching behavior in Windows 7?
I'm upvoting yours b/c you have added another piece to the puzzle of "making alt-tab work like it used to." Thanks - great nugget!

comment OWA on IE8 cannot access local shared folder, error “network access is denied”
I'm still experiencing this problem, and to top it off, it happens on a new laptop (still win 7). So this is a fairly generic problem, fwiw. Help!

comment Windows 7 maximized windows not draggable: how to enable?
Good question - it's almost any window. Turns out Skype doesn't honor this feature (big surprise), so that's where I went wrong. Once I started testing with a stock Win UI window, the answer below solved my problem! Good suggestion though - thanks.

comment Windows 7 maximized windows not draggable: how to enable?
Ok - worky! Figured this out. Thanks for persisting with this. Skype doesn't honor this and that happened to be what I was testing with on the new machine. With that option turned off, I am able to click/drag a maximized window to unmaximize it. Too bad in a way, b/c the other "features" of that option I don't like.. Anyway croissant! (If you remember half bakery..)

comment Windows 7 maximized windows not draggable: how to enable?
I am able to do this on my T410s running Windows 7, so it is possible. I just did it to double check: I maximize any window (Windows Explorer, Firefox, etc). I click and drag on the title bar and the window "unmaxmizes" and lets me drag it around, just like an unmaximized window. It's a great feature and I assumed it was a default setting, until I tried the same action on this new T420s and I can't do it. Any other ideas out there?

comment Windows 7 maximized windows not draggable: how to enable?
This doesn't solve the problem. I have already tried with it set both ways and I still cannot drag a maximized window. Thanks for trying to help though! Still hoping for other ideas..

comment Windows 7 always asks if I want to open toolbar shortcuts (.lnk files)
It's hard to believe that this solution works, but it does. Thanks for the tip. I had actually figured this out a while back on my last Win 7 device, but then forgot in the meantime! Great to have it the answer up on superuser now!
