Snap feature and Windows terminal emulation using Quest vWorkspace RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why does the snap feature cease to function when a terminal window is opened? It returns to working after the terminal is closed.  Specifically the problem I am experiencing is with Quest vWorkspace virtual hub.

  • Hi,

    Extracted from Dell website:

    When using a vWorkspace Windows Client installed on Microsoft Windows 7 with an application in seamless windows mode, Aero Snap is disabled. This is required due to known issues in minimizing and maximizing windows.


    If you want to enable this feature, try to manually enable Aero Peek, enable Desktop Composition and check if it helps

    Make sure that Desktop Window Manager Session Manager is started in Windows Services.
