    Perhaps the program snaps windows differently then windows native snap? A Guy

    You're right, CokeRobot & A Guy. I've just tested it for myself and it seems that allSnap introduces the 1 pixel wide bit in-between windows where I could see the red background. Looking at it now without allSnap being turned on, and the two windows explorer windows are literally lined-up next to each other, touching, when I snap each of them to both halves of the screen. This is more to do with the snapping to the side of the screen though rather than to each other. Because if I try to resize a window (or move it) from the middle of nowhere towards the other window, there is absolutely no 'snapping' to the other window.

    If I'm only working with two windows, each snapped to half of the screen, it's not an issue, but I tend to multi-task with a lot more open windows than that.

    Now using Win8 Pro on my 32-bit Desktop PC. Like going from RP to RTM versions helped earlier in the thread to take the huge gap down into a 1 pixel gap, I think that I'm now using the final release version of Win8 is the reason why there's now no space in-between the two windows at all. Result! So glad that we were able to figure out how to thin-down the border thickness too, after Win8 removed them from the Personalize menus, I used the tutorial in the post above.

    Anyways.... Many, many months later I decide to try out Ivan Heckman's allsnap program again, and find that it works! ****ing ecstatic right now!
