On Windows 10, the “Snap” function helps you organize the space on your screen more efficiently, improving productivity. Using this feature, you can quickly snap windows to the sides or corners by just using your mouse, keyboard, or touch without the need to resize and position them manually – even if you have more than one monitor.

  • Select the window you want to snap and press the Windows Logo KeyLeft Arrow to snap that window to the left of your screen or the Windows Logo Key  + Right Arrow to snap that window to the right.
  • If you want to move it to a corner after snapping it, then with the window selected, press the Windows Logo KeyUp Arrow or the Windows Logo Key  + Down Arrow to get it into the desired corner.
  • After you move the window to a corner, the window is in its smallest possible state, which is a quarter of the screen. Then you can use the Windows Logo KeyArrow Keys to move it wherever you want.
