    Default Using Snap in Windows 7

    I am having a problem with the snap feature in Windows 7. I can drag a page to the right or left and it clicks into place but when i try to open a new page it opens on top of the first one.

    Not sure exactly what your saying here:
    Which application are you using? Word? A web browser?

    In my experience, i open a new window, then the second window, drag one to the left edge and one to the right and they "Snap" together. Opening a new window will create a third "hovering" window, until it is also "snapped" into place, either on the left or right. You can then switch between these windows using the icons on the bottom toolbar.

    If thats whats happening for you also, thats correct, as far as i'm aware.

    Could you give a little more detail if this is the not the case?

    I mean the second page opens on top of the first instead of next to it.

    Yes, what you are experiencing there is "tabbed Browsing"

    Depending on the browser, you can either right-click the second tab and see if there is an option to "open in a new window" or right-click the link you clicked to open that tab, before you open it, and select a similer option (ie, "open in a new window")

    This is a feature of the browser you are using and nothing to do with windows 7 "Snap".

    If your still getting trouble, let us know which browser your using, and i'll try and help further.

    PS, ThankYou for the screenshot, it spoke a thousand words

    Maybe

    Right click the task bar and choose show windows side by side

    Then there is an option to Undo side by side.

    Could something like this be an issue http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...e-538978c3f785

    Sorry,

    Grezaldo;

    I can't get to the bottom of it. Perhaps that's the way it works and you simply position the second window to where you want it.
