Enable Or Disable The Automatic Arrangement Of Window

The latest Operating System from Windows, the Windows 7 has provided users with many new and extra features. Smart Window Arrangement (SNAP) is one of the latest features added by Windows 7. It enables the user to rearrange or move the window easily. The main feature of SNAP is that the user can maximize the desired window by just moving it towards the screens top.

The user can also expand and resize the window by dragging its edges to the position it wants to. The main motive behind designing SNAP is to arrange and manage the desktop’s window effectively. It is an extremely smart function that allows multiple windows being placed beside each other. The feature provides convenience for some and inconvenience for others.
