    Default Windows 7 Snap feature... Any way to do it vertically...?

    Hi,


    Noted that Windows 7 has the snap feature where it can display 2 windows side by side horizontally (in lanscape and portrait mode).

    Is it possible to snap the windows to be one on top of the other when in portrait mode for tablets?

    ...Only by manually resizing the windows and stacking them, as far as I know...

    Right click on the taskbar and try the 'show windows stacked' option -you need at least two windows open and active to do this [ie: not minimized]

    Another way to do this is using the Task Manager. Open up the taskmanager (right click on Taskbar -> Task Manager, or Ctrl+Esc), then Ctrl+click which applications you want, then right click and stack it like mentioned. Problem with these methods are when you remove them from their place, they don't go back to their sizes before.

    Edit: apparently this won't work in Windows 8 due to their new task manager....
