    Disable corner snapping keyboard shortcut in Windows 10


    Hi,
    This is a small thing they added in Windows 10, but it's really annoying me. I like to use Win + Down arrow to minimise windows, but if you've already hit Win + Left or Right, Aero snapping to the side, Win + Down will snap the window to the corner instead of minimising. As I said, it's a tiny addition, but really bugging me. Is there any way (perhaps through group policy) to disable these snapping shortcuts and just use Win + Up/Down for minimise and maximise, regardless of whether the window is snapped or not?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Try redefining your shortcut keys using Autohotkey (free). Something similar worked for another user- different function.

    I'd suggest considering allocating Win key Up/Down to Autohotkey's WinMaximize, WinMinimize com,ands.

    Its help is excellent, good user forum.

    Thank you!
    The following script disables Win + Left and Win + Right.
    Code:
    #Left::return
    #Right::return
    This disables Win Left and Right as well as forcing Win Up and Win Down to maximise/minimise, meaning that you can use Win + Down to minimise a window which is already maximised (something you can't do in Windows by default).
    Code:
    #Left::return
    #Right::return
    
    #Up::
    WinMaximize, A
    return
    
    #Down::
    WinMinimize, A
    return
    Thanks,
    Adam
