    Snapping windows to the top and bottom of the screen


    Hey all,As part of my setup in my office, I have one monitor rotated 180 to use in portrait mode. Something I have not been able to figure out is if you can snap a window to the top or bottom half of the screen as you would snap to the left or right on a landscape screen. Is there possibly a hidden setting I haven't found yet that would allow me to do this?Thanks.

    :)

    Snap Assist to top and bottom in portrait mode

    I work in Portrait on my desktop and have found an almost-but-not-quite solution building on Eeshwar's suggestion.

    1) Snap a window to one of the corners. For this purpose we'll say you have your notes app and Snap it to bottom-left or bottom-right.

    2) Size the snapped window horizontally to fill the screen

    3) Snap "top" window to either top corner - the window will match the size of your previously-snapped bottom window and fill the rest of the screen.

    This solution has drawbacks:

    1) Extra step - you must resize the initial window after snapping

    2) No official keyboard shortcuts

  3. Windows 10 Top Snap Feature - Partial Fix

    So, similar to many out there, I love side snap and detest top snap.

    How to keep the former while eliminating the latter?

    This is the closest I have come:

    • Start Menu
    • Settings
    • Search 'snap'
    • switch off 'When I snap a window, automatically size it to fill available space'
    Note this won't completely eliminate top snapping, but it doesn't seem to do it as quickly as before AND it doesn't eliminate left/right snap.

    Let me know what you think of my fix or if you have a better one.

    Cheers!

    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.
