I am using xubuntu 17.04 with the xfce interface.

Having multiple workspaces, it seems that when I drag a window to the edge of the screen, my screen changes to the next workspace.

Is there a way to disable this ?

I tried googling this, but the settings whereabouts keep changing between ubuntu versions. I am not sure where I could disable window edge snapping in ubuntu 17.04.
