    Win 10 Snap Assist - Inconsistent results between screens


    I have a strange issue with Windows 10's snap assist. It's going to seem really pedantic but it's affecting a required workflow which I wont go into here.

    I have 2 screens each with screen res 3840 x 2160.

    The workflow requires 2 browser screens open and I use win 10's snap assist to place side-by-side.

    On screen 2 snap assist results in two side-by-side browser windows each with a width of 767px which is just perfect for my purpose. The unmentioned websites render perfectly and are fully usable.

    On screen 1 snap assist results in two side by side browser windows each with a width of 766px and this prevents the websites being fully usable.

    To illustrate see attached screenshots from both screens where I have used Firefox's web dev tools and screen ruler to show what I mean. I'm just using google start page for illustration.

    Images a & b - showing screens 1 and 2 in single window full screen browser mode - each with identical 1536px width

    Image c - screen 2 operating correctly and as required in spilt screen mode using snap assist - 767px window widths each

    Image d - screen 1 with snap assist 'discrepency' - 766px window widths each, small 2px between snapped windows

    How can I get screen 1 to snap correctly to 767px widths eachand not lose 2 pixels?

    To reiterate - this is not pedantic as it seems for my use case.
    For anyone who hasn't lost the will to live reading this and might be able to advise me I'd be most grateful.

    :)

    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.

    Win 10 Snap Assist - Inconsistent results between screens

    Snap Assist: Putty Window behavior

    Windows 10 Snap-Assist does not manipulate a Putty window as expected. The normal sequence starting from full-screen is:

    1. Full Screen
    2. Win + ←: Half screen
    3. Win + ↑: quarter screen

    Instead, with Putty:

    1. Full Screen
    2. Win + ← changes to 3/4 screen and toggles from one side to another
    3. Win + ↓ hides the 3/4 screen

    Is there a setting that configures the Putty windows to behave more like its peers? I tried to Google this but was not successful. I would think that this has already been done.
