You know how in unity when you grab a window and snap it to the top of the screen it will go fullscreen? Im currently using xubuntu but when I snap the window to the top it will just fill the top half of the screen. I wanna know if there is a way in xfce to make windows go full screen when snaping to the top while still keeping that "mosaic" snap just in the sides.

In xfce you have to double click on the top to get fullscreen.

Yet I don't know about settings to change the snapping to going fullscreen.

Any setting are at Settings Manager -> Window Manager -> Advanced or Settings Manager -> Window Manager Tweaks
