Everytime I click on a window it instantly goes to full screen.

This is not the same issue as I don't move the window I simply cluck on the window to move it and it enlarges. I can after a few tries get it to hold so I can drag the window to where I want it. I don't think the snap feature is the culprit here as I don't even move the window nor is it near the edge of the screen. This just started. It is win 11

    If you double click a window then it tends to maximize. If you are seeing that with a single click then it is possible the double click detection rate is too high. Go to the mouse settings and lower it.

    You didn't mention the app but it is also possible that is just how the app behaves. It would be annoying if it did but it sounds like it just started so maybe not.

    If the app starts up in maximize mode then change the shortcut setting to have to start normal (and hope it doesn't default to full screen).
