    I found this guide, but it no longer works with RTM.

    I am also wondering about this. I have tried the reg hack and even the standalone program thats supposed to enable it, Without any luck. :( Has anyone figured out a workaround for this yet? monitor size is 1280x800.

    In on this :worthy:
    Yes it is. I was able to snap just fine using the hack on the consumer/developer preview. It should work the same way in RTM if anybody can find out how to do it again...

    I posted this tweak long time ago on MDL from where it spreaded, this tweak is no longer available over Registry on RTM as it was a debug function for testing.
    Even if you can enable it you can't make full use of the Snap View that way as the needed Pixels to show the Content are just not there, the tweak didnt do any resizing but simply forced the snap view.. just forget about it.

    Lame. I was kinda hoping I could get it to work like I did in the RP version of Windows 8. Well if anyone ever finds a workaround let me know!
