Snap with the mouse

Snap with mouse demo

Use Snap to arrange all your open windows using the mouse, keyboard, or the Snap Assist feature.

  • Select the title bar of the window you want to snap.

  • Drag it to the edge of your screen. An outline will appear to show where the window will snap to once you drop it.

  • Drag it to the left or right side of your screen to snap it to the left or right half of the screen.

Snap with the keyboard

To snap a window with the keyboard:

  • Select the window you want to snap and press the Windows Logo Key  + Left Arrow to snap that window to the left of your screen or the Windows Logo Key  + Right Arrow to snap that window to the right.
  • If you want to move it to a corner after snapping it, then with the window selected, press the Windows Logo Key  + Up Arrow or the Windows Logo Key  + Down Arrow to get it into the desired corner.
  • After you move the window to a corner, the window is in its smallest possible state, which is a quarter of the screen. Then you can use the Windows Logo Key  + Arrow Keys to move it wherever you want.

Snap with Snap Assist

Snap Assist appears after you’ve snapped a window but have a lot of available space on your screen. Any other open windows are displayed in that space as thumbnails.

  • Click the thumbnail of the window you want to open in the empty space on your screen.
  • If you have two windows displayed side-by-side, you can resize both windows simultaneously by selecting and dragging the dividing line.
  • Resize the window on one side to the size you want it to be, and then release the mouse button. The other window will resize itself to fit alongside the first one, so you won't have any empty screen space.
