Unable to snap windows using the mouse with multiple monitors


When using multiple monitors on Windows 7 or 8, you are unable to “Snap” windows side by side by dragging the window to the edge of the screen.
The snap feature in Windows allows you to line up to windows such as a Word document and a webpage. This allows you to easily work on multiple windows at the same time. For more information on Snap see: Windows Snap.


Windows does not support snap on a single monitor, via mouse drag, in a multi monitor configuration.


You may however snap the Windows manual using the shortcut key.

  1. Select the window you want to snap
  2. Use the following shortcut keys to snap the window left or right:Windows + Left Arrow Key
    Windows + Right Arrow Key

Continue to press the shortcut key until the window is suitably place. Pressing the same shortcut key repeatedly will cycle through all possible snap locations, on all available monitors.
