WMC does not like aerosnap ?

Hi. Am I the only one with this annoyance? Media Center does not snap to the sides, I kept trying either side, resizing the window, no go. Anybody found a solution for this? Thanks for any info or solution

Hi compitus, welcome to the forums.

Unfortunately there are a great many applications that don't use the AeroSnap function. I think it's due to the resources required & the internal workings of the app.

I've just tried a few & it looks like mainly 'folder' & 'browser' based apps/environments will utilize AeroSnap. It's a case of trial & error when trying application with AeroSnap i'm afraid.

Hope this helps :)

Thank you for such a quick response. Reason I am disappointed is, while using Vista, I was using aerosnap 0.61 which snaps everything perfectly. I guess I could use it in windows 7, but why can't MS come with something better then that? Anyway thanks again

Why do you think so? I was running Vista on same machine with same resolution 1920 X 1200 and using aerosnap, was snaping Vista MC to any side, without any hitch, is windows 7 different somehow?
