If you have a widescreen display that runs at 1366×768 or higher resolution, you can use a new Windows 8 feature called Snapping Apps. Snapping Apps lets you view two Windows 8 apps or one Windows 8 app and the Windows classic desktop at the same time. Here’s how it works.
- Open a Windows 8 app from the Start screen.
- Click the top edge of the program display.
- Drag the program display to the left or right edge of the screen.
- Release the mouse. The program snaps to the left or right edge of the screen.
- Hover the mouse over the lower-left corner of the screen.
- Open an app or the Desktop from the Start screen.
- Drag the Windows 8 program to the other edge of the screen.
- Release the mouse. The program snaps to the other edge of the screen.
To switch a program to full-screen view, drag the border of one program toward the program you want to hide.
