I am pretty sure this is a Dell specific thing on this computer. When ever I drag a window I get this little blue box that if I drag any windows into it it will snap it to a side or make it full screen. I think it is Dell specific because it continues to happen even when I disable snap altogether. Has anyone encountered this and has an idea on how to get rid of it? It is pretty annoying.

 

I have attached a photo of this annoying box.

No sign of this on any of the Dell's I checked at work.

Will need more info.  Take a look in Task Manager to see what's running

I can't seem to find anything suspect. I attached a text file with all running processes on the system.

I figured it out! It was Dell's PremierColor. Apparently it is specific software for their newer XPS lines. But that is definitely what it is.

A million times THANK YOU, that blue box was driving me insane and this is the only post on the internet it seems that addressed it!  I created an account just to let you know how much I appreciate it.  Thanks again!!
