When I use the Aero Snap hotkeys (e.g.
Win + Left for snapping a window) sometimes the Start Menu pops open, taking focus away from the window I just positioned and not bringing up the other window selection choices. I'm pretty sure this happens when I don't hit
Win and the arrow keys at the same time. E.G. if I press
Left simultaneously, Aero Snap works as expected, but if I press
Left, it will bring up the Start Menu.
I also use
Win + Up + Up to take a window from the side snap to full screen which I would like to have work as well. This one is less important since there are other shortcuts to make a window full screen, but it'd still be really nice to keep using that shortcut.
I seem to remember this not being a problem before I reinstalled my OS recently, and this issue is very annoying.
Is there any way to prevent the Start Menu from popping up in these cases aside from disabling the Start Menu
Win shortcut? I still use
Win to bring up the search for quick access to applications, so I'd prefer not to outright disable that shortcut. I know that
CTRL + ESC will open the start menu, but just hitting
Win is so much nicer since
CTRL + ESC is awkward to reach.
