Windows 7: Another Aero Snap Function?

Another Aero Snap Function?

Has anyone else noticed this. I often like to have my windows a tall as I can so I can see as much of a page a possible without having them maximized. In build 7000 when I grab the top of the title bar (double ended arrow) or a corner and drag it to the top of the screen or the bottom of a window (or bottom corner) and drag that down to the taskbar, the window automatically sizes itself to the full height of the desktop.

I agree.

I've noticed that Brink has done several tutorials on different Snap features, but how about having a tutorial that brings all the features together in one place. Just a thought.

A burst of energy and a little time to play both at the same time.

Just trying to keep up

You can also snap the window to the side (so that it covers half the screen) and after it has snapped you can drag it to the left or the right to place it anywhere you want.
