Window move automatically when mouse reach the border

Hi, I have a ThinkPad Edge 11

 

It came pre installed with synaptics 15.0.24.0 and windows 7

 

when i move a window partially out of the screen, and i move the mouse on the edge the window is, it automatically moves the window back to the screen.

 

i want to stop this.

 

aero snap is disabled.

 

this don't happen in safe mode, so is definitely some third party application?

Re: Window move automatically when mouse reach the border

This is one of the lesser known Lenovo tools. Lenovo Auto Scroll provides this feature, and can be uninstalled from Programs and Features. You can later re-add this functionality by running the Hotkey setup.

Re: Window move automatically when mouse reach the border

This feature made browsing on my  Lenovo S230U Thinkpad Twist Windows 8 nearly impossible. After uninstalling AutoScroll, browsing works great and other quirky mouse problems cleared up.

 

I am much happier with my Ultrabook and Windows 8 now. 

 

Thank you very much for the tip!

Re: Window move automatically when mouse reach the border

Hi, my windows are also moving around every time my cursor moves. I have a ThinkPad T400 and I'm using an external mouise and  monitor. I searched for Autoscroll to change it, but I couldn't open any of the 4 files that were found. I went to the Control Panel and tried everything that could possibly be related but nothing has worked, This is a recent problem and it has made my computer barely useable. Thanks, Jeanne.
