Hey!

I am a big fan of Aero Snap. I just want to know whether there is a way to resize windows automatically when I maximise them.

Thank you for reading!

What do you mean ? When you maximize a window it goes to full screen.
And there is no Aero snap in 11 is there ?
I thought it was gone from 10, but apparently not ?

I didn't probably explain very well.
Imagine having to minimised windows. You maximize one window and then you maximize the other window. You want them to stand next to each other and you do that by clicking Windows button and left or right arrow on keyboard and you want that because of the multitasking. You end up dividing your screen in half. One half is one window in the other half is the other window. I just want to know whether there is a way to make Windows separate themselves without clicking arrows and shift.

Yes, drag to edge or corners, or use snap layouts...

I see but seems like I still have to adjust the windows.
I still have to press Windows button and arrows on the keyboard. Seems like there is no way to do it automatically...
Either drag them or use the WinKey+< >, I know of no other way.




...... unless, of course, you have the old Taskbar features..., but, for that you need some magic dust, cuz Microsoft outlawed that setting cuz it's evil! :cool:

Still didn't sort it out honestly. I guess there must be some kind of way because this seems very simple.
In case someone didn't understand I just want to find some program which will be able to automatically resize all of my windows. You have hit the spot when you have mentioned the fact that I want my screen to be divided 50/50 and to have Google Chrome for example on the left side and the other window on the right side but the problem is once I close Google Chrome I always have to resize the window manually when I open the program again. There must be some kind of program which remembers the configuration and saves it to memory. When I open Google Chrome I always want it to be on the left side.
I have tried "Aqua Snap" and "Windows Resizer" but none of them helped.

Hmmm..., works here if I size and position them manually!
Bear in mind, you have to manually re-size all 4 sides of each window, Windows will not remember a Snapped position.

That's exactly what I am looking for since I don't want to resize manually all the time.
Would be good if I were able to open specific window already resized to predefined size...
Have given "VOVSOFT Window Resizer" a try but it doesn't keep the position.
