    Snap / Snap Assist isues


    I am not at all sure Snap & Snap Assist are working as they should. I find it rather confusing to sort out what to expect, having read some articles about it (here and elswhere.)

    The most obvious sign is that there is no transparent overlay. I have never seen this phenomenon even when trying to activate it deliberately. Next, am I right in thinking Snap should mean that adjacent Windows are precisely 'butted' against one another? Sometimes I get this, at other times they overlap. The 'thumbnail list apears sometimes, not always and when I open a fresh Window from a thumbnail it does not Snap into place, often it overlaps and I have to adjust it manually. When I move a Window to left, right or a corner nothing happens, it just keeps on moving until it goes off the screen.

    I use a combination of mouse and the Windows arrow keys. The arrow key method often Snaps when the mouse does not.

    I have all the Snap options set to 'on' in Settings.

    I anticipated I might have some problems with Snap as my maximum display is1280 X 80, ie. les than the recomended resolution, but I have no difficulty displaying multiple Windows (4).

    :)

    Snap Assist

    Going kinda crazy. How do i set up my settings so that i NEVER GET A QUARTER SCREEN SNAP when i drag a window to the left or right. I never use quarter size screens and this is really messing up my work flow. I want half screen snap ONLY, ALWAYS. Windows
    7 did it by default, the fancy new settings in Win 10 dont seem to have a way to adjust this. Please help me.
