  1. The Windows button and arrows didn't work and I couldn't tell what else you did to move the screens besides the touch screen. I don't have touch screen on my laptop.

  2. I hate Snap Assist more than terrorism. Never once in the history of PC usage has any sane person ever clicked on the top bar of a window to automatically maximize it's size. Every single time effing time I have ever clicked on the top bar of a window, I did it to MOVE the frame to where I want it. Snap Assist make that impossible. It can never be fully disabled either. I've turn the option "off" but it still snaps. It is the worst effing thing that has ever happened to computer usage and I hope the person who decided to add this "improvement" burns in the fires of hell for all eternity.

  3. For those wanting to go back to Win7 snap style, simply turn off the "When I snap a window, show what I can snap next to it" under Settings > System > Multitasking. This feature was killing my productivity with my multi-monitor setup.

  4. Wow, didn't know you could snap diagonally to set the window to take up the top/bottom left & right corners. Should make life easier. Don't believe that was in Windows 7, which is what I upgraded from.

  5. I finally figured out Snap, but Snap Assist doesn't work. No thumbnails appear. And I can't shift windows to different corners using the keyboard. You do it, but you don't show us how you did it.

  6. In multiple desktop windows, I find that you cannot open a program twice. For example, if Microsoft edge is open in desktop 1 then you cannot open it in desktop 2, same with other apps and programs. Is there a way to work around this?
