    Disabling Snap also disables shortcut to move windows between monitors


    After switching my second monitor to one that exactly matched my primary in resolution and pixel size, I had a lot of trouble dragging windows between monitors on Windows 10. At any reasonable speed, as my cursor hit the boundary between the two monitors, Windows wanted to grab the window and not let go. The problem was Windows Snap. Snap might be useful for a single monitor system, automating window sizing so you can see two windows as large as possible simultaneously. It's less useful with multiple monitors, hence many helpful tips on the web about how to turn it off.


    The thing that makes no sense is that disabling Snap, which many people with multiple monitors seem to want to figure out how to do, also disables the "Windows logo key + Shift + Left arrow or Right arrow" keyboard shortcut that moves a window from one monitor to another, described under Windows logo key keyboard shortcuts here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12445/windows-keyboard-shortcuts.


    Is it possible to disable Snap without disabling that keyboard shortcut?

    :)

    Neep Help to Disable Aero Snap Between Monitors Only on Windows 10

    I know the shortcuts and I am using them constantly. But if I turn off the AeroSnap it also disables the keyboard shortcuts and if I keep it enabled then every window gets stuck when trying to move them from one monitor to another. So let us disable the
    snapping while keeping the keyboard shortcuts enabled. You did improve the snapping though as now it doesn't snap so fast and you can actually move windows between the monitors, but I would still prefer if the drag-and-snap could be disabled completely without
    disabling the keyboard shortcuts.

    Disable corner snapping keyboard shortcut in Windows 10

    Try redefining your shortcut keys using Autohotkey (free). Something similar worked for another user- different function.

    I'd suggest considering allocating Win key Up/Down to Autohotkey's WinMaximize, WinMinimize com,ands.

    Its help is excellent, good user forum.

    Disable aero snap between monitors

    Hello.

    I have had windows 10 for about a year now and are useing a multi monitor setup. I found out the first day after I installes windows 10 that the aero snap was going to be realy annoying so I did a lot of searching to try and disable the problem or work around
    it. I found that I cud disable it but that also ment that I cud no longer grab and drag maximized windoes like I can with aero snap active. I can also not snap the windows to the top of the screen like I want to keep. So I desided to keep the snap on and see
    if I cud get used to it, as you might guess I am not used to it and are about to go mad.

    So what I want is to ask is if there is a way to disable aero snap between monitors and sticky corners, but keep the snap to the top of the screens like we had in windows 7.
