  1. Invoke snap layouts with a touch screen??


    Is there a way to use a touch screen to invoke the new snap layouts? When I don't have a keyboard attached, I'm a loss how to use the new layouts. I tried long pressing on the maximize/restore button, but it didn't bring up the snap layout menu. Any other ideas? Note: keyboard shortcuts aren't a real option because I don't always have a physical keyboard attached, and trying to do snapping through the onscreen keyboard is highly inefficient.Thanks in advance for the suggestions and ideas!

    :)

    Hi Edwin....

    Yes, it works on 8.1, at least on my surface pro 3.

    Couldn't do a screenshot cause can't get to Snipping tool while keyboard is up, so I did a "step recording". See attached. Pardon the background, it's my Granddaughter! Cheers! *Cool

    I'm gonna have to put 8.1 back on my machine somewhere!
    Course, your Surface is built for that, this HP monitor is labeled 'Limited Touch Support' so, I'm hoping...
    Thanks again.
