Tame your computer - snappy new arrangements

In her regular series for Cambridge Network members - now in its 15th year - software training expert Karen Roem offers handy tips to help you 'Tame your computer'. This week she describes how to arrange windows side-by-side without being asked what to snap next to it (Windows 10).

Windows 10 has a wealth of nifty, new features, but I cannot get my head around some of the new settings.

One of them is that every time I want to arrange my windows side-by-side I have to tell it what I want to “snap” next to it. That default setting is probably great if you didn’t know about the functionality, but if you’ve been using it since 2011 it might drive you around the bend.

So I was delighted when one of my delegates in a recent 60-minutes Windows webinar shared how to change the default setting.
