With Windows 10, Microsoft is fixing a lot of UX issues for desktop users that were present on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Few months back, the company introduced a new Snap Assist for Windows 10, which works much like Windows 7. It’s worth mentioning that if you are Windows 10 running on a tablet, you’ll be able to multi-task easily as well – just like Windows 8.

Today, Microsoft introduced a new feature dubbed as Snap Fill which is pretty interesting. The feature will allow you to fit Windows independently – meaning that Windows will be able to fill empty spaces with various sized windows. The company explains:

Snapping into perfect quarters or halves of the screen is useful, but sometimes optimal layouts aren’t necessarily symmetrical. You might want to make your browser window large and windows showing your social feed or playing a video small. These kinds of tweaks typically take a number of mouse moves to accomplish to get everything just right. In Windows 8, side-by-side Store apps automatically filled up the available space on screen without leaving any gaps, making the most of available screen real estate.

This is indeed a great new addition, allowing users to make the most of the available screen space. Tell us what you think of improved multi-tasking features on Windows 10 in the comment section below!
