  2. Accessibility feature of Windows Snap in Windows 10

    Hello,

    The mouse sensitivity while performing a Snap works in tandem with how it works in Windows. So, changing the mouse sensitivity will not impact the Snap feature functionality separately.

    So to answer to your query, there is no such dedicated control/settings to change how mouse gestures will work for Snap feature in Windows.

    However, a work around in this case is to use keyboard shortcuts:

    • Windows + Left Arrow
    • Windows + Right Arrow
    This works to snap windows to the left and right half of the screen respectively.

    Hope the recommendation is helpful.

  3. Windows 10 snap feature no longer works


    This is weird because the snap and drag feature has worked perfectly until a couple of days ago. First of all, it is turned on. And it did work before. But it's easier to show instead of tell. So, here's a short Jing video: Windows will not snap together
    I'd love some help. Thanks.

    We need a better Snap feature!

    Snapping windows in win8 was amazing, having a list view on the rightside of the screen was really handy, it let you slide in an app next to your already open application. In windows ten this feature no longer exists. I now need to swipe right tap my app,
    shrink it down then find my app to put side by side... extra steps are annoying.

    Now that apple came out with a similar feature on their ipad, theirs actually works better than windows 10! Please make this feature more intuitive bring back the old snapping from windows 8!

    Also add a thin bar between windows that i have snapped when in desktop mode so that i can easily resize them.
