That's not really true, or at least, is not all the truth. Open
Notepad, grab it by the caption, and move it to the left or right;
Windows will "maximize it" to half-display left or right. Then grab it
again from the caption, and move it off the side of the display:
Windows restores its previous size. So the half-maximized left/right
is some sort of state of a window, it's not just a resizing, because
on a normal resizing Windows does not remember the previous dimensions
of the window. Vertical maximization (Win+Shift+Up) is also a
"sort-of-maximized" state that can be restored with Win+Shift-Down.
