    Metro Snap messed up?


    Is this the way its supposed to work? On Windows 8.1 I can snap Slacker Radio to one half of my 19 inch screen and snap the Weather app on the other half. Now in Windows 10 its not doable. Neither App will resize that small. They don't seem to want to Snap at all like its turned off or something? What am I missing?

    The modern/metro apps seem to have a minimum pixel count that they must take up. Depending on the resolution of your monitor, a modern app may or may not snap correctly. I also noticed last night while trying to snap 4 programs to take up specific corners, that after a modern app failed to snap correctly, I then could not snap anything until I closed all my programs and started over.

    Snap may not be too high on my list but don't like that too large minimum Apps have to which they could be made smaller. I like to leave a bunch of smaller programs running on second monitor and if they are too large, they would not all fit there.

    All they want to do for me is go full screen. My main monitor is 1080p. The way its working for me now, is a major step backward.

    I've noticed my open desktop programs will snap to quadrants. The two Metro Apps I use won't though, they now have a minimum window size that prevents it? I think he meant he got Windows 10 working?

    I think it's still buggy!
    I could snap explorer windows no problem but, when I open a Store app and snap it, it works for that one then breaks the feature.
