    Snap on lower resolutons ever?


    Do you think it will ever make it so you can "snap" using lower resolutions?
    My Asus tablet does 1280x800 which is lower than the 1366x768. I know there was a hack on the earlier releases but was wondering if anyone knew of a way or thought there would ever be a way to do this on lower resolutions now.


    Thanks,
    Scott

    Do you mean Metro Snap? Or Aero Snap? (Despite not having Aero, Aero snap still works).

    If you're talking about the desktop version (Aero Snap) then there are some nifty tools, such as Window Pad

    I meant the Metro snap.

    Two 1280x1024 19 inch monitors here, but they aren't wide screen monitors so no Metro Snap here either. =(
    I never could get the hack to work either.

    Really hoping that when it is released someone will come up with a new hack. Would really like to have this feature!!

    I remember using this hack, but it only worked with netbooks in particular as their displays had an unlocked resolution. I don't know if there will be any possibility for metro snap on low resolutions though...

    I'll see if I can find that hack again and post it here if it will help.
