    Window Alignment


    Why do windows now have a gap between them? I find this with lots of programs and is a pain when organising my desktop. In Windows 8 there would be no gap between these 2 windows in my example below. Is this a bug or is this part of Windows 10 design?

    Can confirm, this happens to my TeamViewer as well. Not sure why. Also it snaps into this place as if intended. I think this will be updated by TeamViewer as it is probably their problem rather than Microsofts.

    Windows 10 windows are virtually borderless but the placeholders are still there.
    (Even if you have a bordered theme, some snap-ins will not show a border)

    Teamviewer was just an example, it's not limited to this app, I see it with others, even explorer. If I use the side by side function, which I often use for 2 explorer windows, I get this. In Windows 8, there were no gaps, this looks untidy and seems like a unfinished product.

    If windows 10 windows are borderless, you'd have though MS would allow snap to take this into account and fill the screen correctly.

    This I cannot see on my computer. For Windows there are no spaces in between windows:

    I believe that is done by design, but it's not an issue if you drag a windows to the edge or win-key + directional arrows.

    hmm, well whilst I like most of the features of windows 10, this I do not like, it is completely different from all versions I have used. It feels unfinished and in a corporate environment where productivity is key it would be pretty poor. I'm not sure why MS felt this needed changing from Windows 8.1. Maybe I'm being picky, but I like the way I use my PC and how it's laid out, I don't like the new window features or the start menu in Windows 10 (Using Start10 instead), so in the end I may end up going back to Windows 8.1.
