I'm trying to move a window to the adjacent workspace by dragging it , but when the window touches the edges , it enlarges and try to occupy the right half of the screen.

Is this behavior configurable in KDE4 ?

Thanks !

System Settings > Workspace Behavior > Screen Edges; Switch desktop on edge: Disabled/Only When Moving Windows/Always Enabled.

KDE Userbase:

In the Screen Edges module you can choose between certain actions to be triggered when the mouse moves to one of the edges or corners of the screen. Each edge, and each corner can have its own action attached. You can also decide whether you want windows to be maximized when you drag them to the top edge of the screen, or to be tiled when you drag them to the sides of the screen. Finally you can set what happens to windows when you drag them across the screen edge.
