    Windows 8 Snap Desktop


    It has been driving me crazy, but I don't know what it is

    If you have skype, or evernote (for win8 desktops) notice that when you near it to the edge, it "snaps" so to speak. THIS IS NOT THE SNAP where you snap to the right or to the left!

    I am just lost as to how this came to be. Is this application-specific? I would very much prefer all my applications/windows to snap to the edge as they are.

    It's something the app does. This is not a feature of Windows. It does it on Windows 7 as well.

    Aww... That sucks. I would have loved to have something like that I used to use Gridy on Windows 7, so I didn't notice that, I always thought it was because of Gridy.

    I guess I'm back to Gridy unless there's any better competitor out there.

    Thanks for the reply.
