Windows 7: HELP: AeroSnap on right of screen not working...

HELP: AeroSnap on right of screen not working...

I just upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium (64-bit) to Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). When I drag a windows to the left corner, it snaps. However, it doesn't work on the right-hand corner of my screen. When I try I just drag the window and mouse entirely off the visible portion of the screen.

I have a nVidia 9800 GTX as a GPU and a quad core CPU. Four gigs of RAM on top of that.

How can I resolve this issue? I often need to review side-by-side documents for school or read one document and type in another and it would be helpful to use this feature to its full potential.

No, I don't want to drag it manually. I'm lazy, get over it.

Thanks in advance!,

There's already a thread about this somewhere, I'll see if I can find it. If I recall correctly, it was related to the screen size and/or having a dual monitor configured.

Hello Alex,

Do you have more than one monitor? If so, that would be why. The two monitors will share that middle border (right border for left monitor & left border for right monitor). The far right border of the screen will be the right border of the right monitor instead.

You can right click on the taskbar and click on the "Show Windows.....(stacked or side by side)" instead though for this.

Hope this helps,

Thank you Shawn! You rang the bell!

As it turns out, I use my TV as another monitor, but the settings did not duplicate the screen on the TV, but used it at Monitor 2. I changed the setting to duplicate and it now works.

I appriciate the speedy replies in SevenFourms. I'll likely be staying here for a while. :)
