In Ubuntu 18.04, when moving the windows there is a resize effect that occurs when accidentally touching one of the screen edges. This control was available in CCSM and Ubuntu Tweak in previous versions with Unity.

I'm not finding it in GNOME Tweaks. I also searched the repository with:

apt search ubuntu.*tweak

Open Terminal and run

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter edge-tiling false

You may also have to run

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.overrides edge-tiling false

    How is this different from in CompizConfig Settings Manager setting Grid => Corners/Edges => Top Edge to None? This change in CCSM used to did the trick for 16.04 but not in 18.04 – sdaffa23fdsf Jun 10 '18 at 10:52

    @sdaffa23fdsf Because 18.04 has GNOME + Mutter (by default} whereas 16.04 has Unity + Compiz, two quite different things. – pomsky Jun 10 '18 at 11:08
  • So, is there a Mutter tweak tool? – Robin Hsu May 23 '19 at 1:08
  • Thanks for the answer. I just upgraded an old 16.x machine to 20, and now compiz only crashes, so I'm forced to use PoC Gnome. Why on earth isn't this in a proper graphical configuration? – android.weasel Oct 11 '20 at 7:59

Doesn't Gnome have "Settings Editor" like XFCE (Xubuntu) (It has additional settings in text format for things like Thunar, XFWM4, ristretto, Displays, along with all the XFCE applications. The setting in that is in XFWM4 Uncheck "tile on move"
