    Desktop Snap Stopped working!


    Hello Guys,

    For some reason the Windows 7 style desktop snap has stopped working, I can still snap a metro app to the side of my monitor but not an ordinary program like note pad. I used to either drag the window to the side of the screen or press Windows Key and an arrow to snap it to the left or the right.

    Anyone got any idea's?

    Thanks

    Tony

    Don't Worry Guys, I have uninstalled Samsung Multi Monitor software and Snap is back.

    Cheers

    Sounds like your Aero Snap got shut off momentarily. It's got nothing to do with the driver, its a setting that can be turned on and off. I don't know where the utility to shut it off is, in Windows, but you can turn it on and off with a 3rd party Program.

    It's also in Ease of Access:

    If this happens again, check that setting, and unclick it.
