Thanks to the Snap Menu in Windows 11, you can easily place your windows in layouts that make it easier to see. The good news is that accessing the feature is easy, so even if you’re not too tech-savvy, using the feature shouldn’t be a problem. You can choose from different layouts; it may not be a long list of options, but at least it is not one or two.
How to Find the Snap Menu in Windows 11
Finding the Snap Menu is easy. Once you have a window open, hover the cursor over the maximize button in the title bar. Ensure you don’t click on the maximize option, only over the cursor. If nothing happens, wait a few more seconds. When the Snap Menu appears, choose where to place the first window. For example, choose the side-by-side option if you want the window on the right or left side.
When you choose the location for the first window, you’ll see the remaining windows on one side. Choose one of these windows, which will be placed on the opposite side. If you’re unhappy with the size, you can always resize it. Don’t worry about losing their current position.
If you need to minimize the window temporarily, they will appear in the same spot you left them. You can also place the windows on a side using keyboard combinations: Windows key + Left arrow or right arrow. The window should be placed there automatically.
Which design you decide to go with will depend on what you’re currently working on. You can use the bigger window for the most important one and the smaller one to place the site you’re getting your information from. You can switch from design at any time. Simply place the cursor in the minimize option and choose another design. Just like before, choose a spot to place the first window, and the remaining windows will appear on the side.
If you choose the option with the design to place four windows, the remaining windows will continue to appear until you’ve filled up all the available spaces.
There are times when you need to see various windows at the same time. Thanks to the Snap Menu, you can have four windows visible simultaneously. If you don’t need the current option anymore, you can always switch to another layout at any time. If you minimize a window, it’ll take its original spot when you open it.
