Snap function getting in the way! How to change or remove?

    General discussion

  • Hi!
    I just installed Windows 8 and have been testing in in a couple of ways.
    When I run a fullscreen game, the Snap function still works, which is very annoying.
    Every time I move the cursor to the left of the screen, and press (in-game), i change tabs.
    Is there a way to change how Snap works, or to turn it off?

  • Agree sometimes it does get in the way when the mouse pointer accidentally touches the screen edge. Here's a suggestion to Microsoft: provide a hotkey to use Snap. That is, snap only if I have Alt or Shift held down.

  • Thanks for a quick and helpful answer!
    I browsed through the settings, but it's all so confusing.
    Could you write short how to get to this hotkey-option?

  • There is no hotkey at the moment. I was making a suggestion to Microsoft for making one available in Windows 8. Such an option can be in "Ease of Access Center". Would be very useful for increasing accessibility.
