Windows 7: Aero Border Effects on dual monitor

Aero Border Effects on dual monitor

Just wondering if its possible to have the border effect on each side of the screen with dual monitors. Mine are only on the far right and far left, no middle as it seems logical if you have 2 monitors you might want to have 50% coved with one window and have the 2nd 50% with another window, then you could full screen a 3rd window or just have 2 more halves. but the current way it works is 2 halves then a big empty space in the middle or 2 full screens.

I love the easy and quick way to organize/resize the windows but its very inconvenient to do this manually for half of the screen.

I was wondering this as well.

In order to compare two file explorer windows I have to get Win7 to autoresize them by dragging to the right hand side and then manually move one of them to the side.

It seems strange the monitor edges are not considered "borders". A desktop spread across 2 monitors is great but the monitor boundaries are still used by use human users!

If it isn't possible in this release I hope Microsoft update it in the future.

You have to use keyboard shortcuts for the time being. WIN + ARROW KEYs

Thanks logicearth! I didn't know about those shortcuts. I've got a feeling I will be making good use of this info.
