    Am I Snapping wrong or is Windows just lying to me?


    Whenever I want to snap my windows to the side of the screen, the little preview box indicates that the window will then take up only half of the screen. But when I let go of the mouse, the window then takes up the full screen and the second window I selected is the only one at half size. Is there a setting I should tweak or is this just a case of Windows saying one thing and meaning another?

    Snap Assist

    Hi Cory,

    The Snap Assist allows you to juggle apps, arrange open windows, resize windows by simply dragging and dropping them to the edges of the screen. If you don't want to get a quarter screen snap, you can change the settings of Snap Assist by follow the steps below:

    • Open the Settings app
    • Click System.
    • Click Multitasking.
    • You can turn off some of the option of Snap Assist on this window.

    If you want to disable Snap Assist, you can turn off Arrange windows automatically by dragging them to the sides or corners of the screen.

    Should you have further queries, feel free to post it.

  3. Reduce windows snap sensitivity

    Your suggested article isn't in relation to window snapping at all, it is about drag and drop sensitivity for files and folders. Did you, by chance, link the wrong article unintentionally?

    Am I Snapping wrong or is Windows just lying to me?

    How to disable Windows 10 window resize behavior after snapping?

    I like Windows' snapping features, for the most part. I have trouble with one aspect of the feature, which resizes a window back to its previous size after snapping, if you move the window. I would rather keep the window at the snapped size.

    Follow these steps to see what I mean:

    1. Open a new window
      • Note the size of the window at this point
    2. Snap it to the side of the screen (Win + LeftArrow)
    3. Resize the window to be shorter
    4. Move the window to another spot

    You will observe after step 4 that the window returns to the size it was in step 1. Windows remembers that size and recalls it when you move the window. Is there a way to have Windows keep the size I set via snap/resize instead of the previous size?
