  1. Windows / Start-key resize window disabled


    When Windows 10 is functioning normally, you can hold the Windows/Start-key down and press the arrow keys to move and resize the active window.

    (i.e. Start-key + left moves the window to the left half of your screen;
    Start-key + right moves the window to the right half of your screen;
    Start-key + up maximizes the window to the full screen;
    Start-key + down minimizes the window to the taskbar)

    But it's not working! This has happened before and I don't know how to turn the feature back on or what's causing it to turn off. Any help?

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for being a part of Windows 10.

    Before we proceed, I need more information to help you better.

    • Are you referring to the Windows Start screen tiles?
    • Is this issue specific only to the tiles?
    Please be informed that there may be no option to disable the Ctrl + Scroll functionality.

    I suggest you to retry to scroll the mouse in both ways by pressing Ctrl key + scroll (Mouse) and check.

    If the issue is specific to the Windows Start screen tiles then, I suggest you to follow the below steps to resize the applications on the Start screen.

    • Click on the Start button to open the Start screen.
    • Right click on the Application which you want to resize.
    • Select the Resize option from the list and try the options available.
    Note: Not all the applications can have a Resize option and it varies to a particular applications.

    Reference: Refer to the following Microsoft article on
    Windows 10 help & how-to
    .

    Hope the above information helps. Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further.

    Thank you.
