how to disable snap (top) to maximize window


this feature makes me crazy.
I tried MX Tweak / Window Manager / Advanced /uncheck window snapping

but this did not work.

Is there any other way to disable this feature?

Never used mx. In KDE, that's under System Settings->Desktop Behavior->Screen Edges. Which, for this discussion, just means that it's part of normal Desktop Environment settings - not in some external application.

never used *buntu. I know how to use KDE/Plasma. MX Linux default decktop is XFCE.

Thank you anyway.

Try:

Code:
xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/tile_on_move -s false

Nice one. If you consider the thread solved then you can mark it so (see "Thread Tools" at the top of this thread).
