Your Windows PC’s Snap feature is either the best feature you’re not using, or the best feature you’re probably not using to its full potential. Sure, you may have snapped some windows, but do you know about all the keyboard shortcuts, Snap Layouts, and Snap Groups — and have you tried Microsoft’s even more powerful alternative to Snap?
Snap was originally introduced in Windows 7, where it was called Aero Snap; it let you snap two windows side by side on your screen. It got an upgrade in Windows 10, letting you snap up to four windows in quarters rather than two windows in halves.
It’s even better in Windows 11 with new features like Snap Layouts and Snap Groups, making it both easier to find — and more powerful.
