Greetings all.

I installed Windows 11 yesterday and am having issues with the Snap function in Windows. Most windows will snap to preset windows however Bluestacks (an Android emulator) does not have the option when I hover the mouse over the maximise button in the top right corner of the window.

I am manually resizing the Bluestacks window which looks pretty untidy. Resizing horizontally will cause the window to auto resize vertically, creating an overlap on the window below. This also didn't work in Windows 10.

I have lodged a ticket with Bluestacks yet all I have received is a "we have elevated the issue" reply. That was 4 weeks ago.

Is there a workaround in Windows (ie enabling Snap for Bluestacks) OR is this a Bluestacks issue?

Thanks in advance.

This is definitely a Bluestacks issue. While it is quite good now compared what it was years ago, it still lags behind latest modern features by months if not even years. 😄

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I thought as much. Let's hope Bluestacks comes up with a solution.

I was using Displayfusion till the upgrade and they said the same thing. It's strange cause it (Displayfusion) worked (once) on an older version of Bluestacks 4(?) but then broke on the next update and hasn't worked since.

The Bluestacks regedit hack to change window size and resolution didn't work either.

Thanks again.
