It's a well-known fact that many users who switched from Windows 7 to Windows 8 wanted Microsoft to bring Aero effects back in the modern operating system, despite the company's new approach for flat design.
Some features, however, continued to be available on Windows 8 and 8.1 despite the removal of Aero as a package, including Aero Snap which allowed users to juggle with windows on their desktops and run them side by side, or easily snap them to one side of the screen.
While this particular feature was indeed offered to users, disabling it was quite a pain, as there was no quick way to do it without browsing through lots of menus and options.
Things are going to change in Windows 10, as build 9901 already comes with an option that allows everyone to disable Aero Snap with the press of a button.How to disable it in Windows 10
Starting with Windows 10 build 9901
, users can disable it by simply launching the PC settings screen, going over to “System” and clicking on “Windowing.” Then, there's an option called “Enable Aero Snap,” so simply tapping or clicking it turns it off or on.
