    W10 screen snap like W8


    I've just upgraded my laptop to W10 from W8.
    What I used to do on W8 is say watch the FilmOn app on the right hand side of the screen and use the left hand side to do everything else - outlook, chrome, word, excel...any desktop software. I'd flick between them and the FilmOn app would stay put. I can't work out how to do this in W10. I can snap one app to the right and another to the left, eg TV to the right, Chrome to the left, but if I then go into word, that fills the screen and goes over the TV app.

    Any ideas please? Many thanks.

    I've worked it out. I snap my TV app to the right then resize it to 25%, then Snap Chrome to the left and resize it. Then when I go into something else such as Word, Excel, Outlook etc I snap them to the left and then I can flick between them and the TV app stays on top. Not as good as W8 but with a few more clicks I get there.
