Aero snap issue on three monitor setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a three monitor setup like this: two 22" widescreens on bottom and one centered above. (see illustration below)
    -----XXXXXX-----
    -----XXXXXX-----
    XXXXXX XXXXXX
    XXXXXX XXXXXX

    The issue I'm seeing is that Aero Snap only works on the absolute edges of the entire setup and I can't use aero snap to maximize or auto stretch vertically on the lower two screens. I understand why snap is disabled between screens (you don't want it to snap when you're trying to just move to another screen), but if part of the edge doesn't go anywhere, it should be smart enough to know that and respond accordingly.
    Also, If I stretch a window's top or bottom border to an absolute edge, it stretches the window vertically across both the top and bottom screens so I have a double height window.

  • Hi,

    You may use combination key (Win+ arrow buttons) to make the Aero Snap effect on the active window.

  • I know about those shortcuts..... Doesn't fix the mouse problem though, and if you're doing a lot of clicking, you don't want to have to move over to the keyboard just to maximize or unmaximize the window. I also know you can just double-click on the title bar to do the same function, but sometimes you get so locked into what you're doing and habitually try to do the regular tricks, only to be greeted by frustration.
