    Just upgraded to Windows 8.1 Preview and was excited about the half-screen snap option. However, most of the apps I've used on my Thinkpad Tablet 2 just form black barriers on the sides when snapped in half-screen view.

    This doesn't happen on my windows 8 laptop though. Any ideas why this is only happening on my tablet?

    Apps will have to be updated to support the new snap in 8.1, since supported resolutions are now lower. You can see this with the new 8.1 apps like Skydrive, which work properly.

    It's annoying but should be progressively fixed by developers until the 8.1 official release.
