Windows Longhorn Aero Snap, circa 2005

Recommended Posts


Well the way to connect the windows doesn't seem to work in Windows 7, such as resizing both at the same time when snapped.

Well he did say:

... that wasn't included in the final release (Windows Vista).

And apparently not in Windows 7 either. (And I assume not in Win8?)

Cheers and Regards

Well with Windows 8, it doesn't seem to like having multiple things up anyways. :rolleyes:

For the Snap thing in 7, the article is about Vista but I admit it wasn't ever something I even attempted to try. ;)

If it were ever implemented, that Longhorn feature could come in very handy in certain scenarios, professional or otherwise.

I could see, for example, comparing a foreign-language manuscript to a translated version, to see if all the elements match, or a previous edit to the corrected version side by side. It would cut down on a ton of manual scrolling if the files were to scroll up and down in tandem.

There would need to be a way to turn off the tandem scrolling, though, as in some cases you DON'T want the other window to change as you move around in the first one. But in some cases the function could be a real timesaver. Nice find, UltimateSilence! :thumbup
