Windows 7 / half-screen maximize with multiple displays?

FWeston asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
When you drag a window to the left or right side of the screen in Windows 7, it maximizes to that half of the screen.  When you have more than one display, it only works on the left of the leftmost display and the right of the rightmost display.  Is there a way to make it work for each display?  In other words if I drag a window to the right side of the left display, how can I make it maximize to the right side of the left display?
