    XP Pro Help - Folder Snap

    Windows XP Pro
    Don't understand what has occured but...
    Recently when I try to move folders to the edge of screen they snap into the corners.
    I can only assume that one of windows updates has installed this foolish feature... I know where I want to locate my folders on the screen!
    It's most annoying as I operate with mutiple folders open at one time.
    Can anyone assist me in disabling this annoying feature?

    Well, if i understand your issue correctly, then the below method will solve the case for you:

    1. First of all right-click on your Desktop.
    2. After that at the very top (or near it) there should be a Arrange Icons By, select it.
    3. Next, there will be one option called Allign to Grid with/without a check mark next to it.
    4. Lastly, if there is a check mark next to it you will disable the feature, and if there isnít one you will enable it.

    Thanks Simond!
    I was aware of how arranging icons work... but this is different.
    I have been using XP Pro for many years and never encountered this before.
    I read a few posts on Windows 7 which has this feature called "Snap ****" and it seems to work in a very similar fashion. I can only think that this has been added to my computer via an upgrade file from MSoft. Any other ideas?
