The Snap feature in Windows has some predetermined layouts that you can choose from to snap all your open windows. To open Snap layouts:
- With your keyboard: Press and hold the Windows Logo Key + Arrow to snap the app you are on. You can keep changing positions of the snap using your keyboard arrows.
- With your mouse: In the window you would like to snap, hover over the Minimize or Maximize button to launch the layout box.
The Snap Assist tool will automatically appear once you have snapped your first window. Snap Assist will display all other open windows as thumbnails so you can choose which windows you would like to add to the selected layout.
Once you select a layout and snap every space with selected windows, this automatically becomes a Snap group. This feature can be useful when you are working on a specific task using many apps. If you are interrupted and open a new app, you can easily come back to the Snap group by hovering over one of the group's open apps to find the Snap group again.
