Windows 11 - Snap Layouts


The snap function in Windows 11 has been updated with a system called Snap Layouts providing several grid-based layout options that let you set up your open apps just how you want them. The familiar side-by-side windows layout is joined by new layouts that put windows in stacked configurations, quadrants, and even put a trio of windows together, with either similar window sizing, or a center panel with sidebars perfect for looking at multiple documents, spreadsheets or websites side by side.

To start utilizing these layouts:

  1. Hover over the Maximize button in application you want to Snap


  2. You will be presented with multiple layout options


  3. Select the layout option and were you want the current application to be located within that layout


  4. You will then be prompted to choose the other application, tab or window that you would like in the next tab.  Simply click the option you want


  5. In this case, I have chosen a side-by-side layout with the Calvert County Public Schools website on the left panel and Notepad on the right
