Windows 7: Snap a Window to a Side

Yep, it activates at the point where the mouse point is at on the window when it reaches the for border as if the two monitors was one instead. :)

Oh, now I see. It is when the mouse pointer reaches the border of the screen. Thanks. Now the upper Maximization starts to make a lot more sense. But where the two screens "connect" only with keyboard, right?

Yeah, you have to use the keyboard on the border that the two monitors share. Otherwise it'll just continue on to the other screen.

Thanks for the useful tutorial! I was wondering if there was a way to get it working with the main monitor in a multi-setup, looks like there is :)

You can also get it to snap in any direction, by holding down the Windows Key and
