    Windows 10 Snap Not Fully Functional?

    When dragging desktop windows with my mouse to move them to a corner "Snap" only makes the window full screen size. (All 3 of the Snap options are turned "on" in the Win 10 System Multitasking settings).

    On my desktop, this does NOT happen:

    Snap Assist.
    "To snap a desktop window, left-click its window title bar, hold your mouse down, and then drag it to either the left or right edges of your screen. You’ll see a transparent overlay appear, showing you where the window will be placed. Release your mouse button to snap the window there."

    However, pressing the Windows key plus an arrow key - does act correctly, provided more than one window is open on the desktop to start with.

    Anyone experiencing the same limited/non-functionality using the mouse?

    It works as advertised for me, even with just a single window open.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    @bbearren: Thanks. However, I see I am not alone:

    and I see Microsoft (apparently) acknowledges there is a problem and says " ...we are working on this issue we will get back to you ASAP."
