  1. Windows snapping between multiple monitors.


    I have read multiple threads about this issue and it looks like Microsoft could not care less about Windows 10 users. These said threads are as old as 2015 and the issue is still not fixed.


    Long story short, I am using Windows Areo Snapping feature but when I want to move any window to my second monitor, Areo snap thinks I want to snap the window to the side of my first monitor. A simple fix as ''hold window for one second to snap'' instead of having the users to drag the windows with their mouse as fast as possible to snap. You guys know it's not a hardware issue or software updates. This problem exists only in Windows 10. This problem is the tool itself.


    And before you try to direct me on how to disable it, that is not what I need. I want to snap my windows and use the feature, but it's outraging that I have to move the mouse as fast as possible while dragging a window between my dual monitors. I am an advanced user and currently a programming student and even I know it should be an easy fix. So I ask you, in 2019, Microsoft, fix it!

    Snap (double screen)

    How can I make my screen snap if I'm using two monitors? It would be nice if I could right click on the menu bar and have a dropdown option to snap when I have two screens open or double screens. Obviously I can't just click and drag to snap the screen as
    you can do with a single monitor screen.

    There should be a way to do multiple snap screens with multiple monitors/screens...

    That's my suggestion... Thanks,

  3. How to Configure Windows 10 Snap assist in 3 Monitor Setup AMD Eyefinity

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    As you have stated that after upgrading from windows 7 to window 10 you are facing an issue in the snap assist, as when your try to open a document or browser in monitor 1 and maximize the document or browser it will also maximize on the other two
    monitor but the problem doesn’t occur in windows 7.

    As per understanding the issue I would like you to check whether all the three monitor is connected as duplicate or extended. Please follow the step given below to check if it helps.


    • Press Window + I. ( to open setting Tab)

    • Tap or click on System.

    • Tap or click on Display.

    • Check the Status of Multiple display.

    • If it on Duplicate then change into Extended.
    Note: If you don't see an option named multiple displays in your display settings, then Windows isn't detecting a second monitor plugged into your desktop computer. Or, it is not detecting an external
    monitor plugged into your laptop. When Windows detects this monitor, it will appear in the drop-down list next to
    Display. If you don't see it listed there, try clicking
    Detect.

    Make sure the monitor you want to extend your desktop to be turned on and plugged into the correct video port on your computer. You might also need to select the correct source labeled on your monitor's controls to ensure the monitor is using the correct
    video port. For more information, check the manual for your monitor or go to the manufacturer's website.

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.

    Neep Help to Disable Aero Snap Between Monitors Only on Windows 10

    Yeah, I have the same issue. Very frustrating to have a window snap to the edge between monitors. Snapping to the edges is great. I love that feature. Windows 7 allowed me to snap to the sides of the desktop, but didn't snap to the edges BETWEEN monitors.
    This new feature is just irritating, and makes having multiple monitors frustrating. Fix it, Microsoft, it's a problem.
