SmartWindows is a Windows productivity app that helps users enhance multitasking skills. Users after setting up their work screens can save that screen configuration in their profile. SmartWindows enables users to auto-arrange multiple desktop apps on the screen with a single click. It enhances the productivity of Windows 10 and 11.
Windows 11 on the other hand is already packed with productivity-rich features that boost multitasking. With the addition of Snap Layouts and Snap Groups, Windows 11 has given users handy tools to efficiently work on multiple apps simultaneously. Let’s see how upgraded features in Windows 11 help achieve work goals in less time.
Snap Layouts is an upgraded feature in Windows 11. This addition has been a center of discussion ever since its release.
Snap Layouts allows users to arrange the window screens of desktop apps by grouping them together. With 6 different layouts, you choose the one that fits best based on your work preferences. The ultimate purpose of Snap Layouts is to easily access multiple apps simultaneously on the screen instead of switching between them back and forth.
Snap Layouts are very easy to use. Just open up all the apps or files you work on. Pull up one of those apps, hover your mouse cursor over the maximize button and it will display the layouts. Select one of those layouts. Add your apps one by one in the tiles and arrange them as per your preference.
The different Snap Layouts are:
- Two vertical sides with the same length
- Two vertical sides with one side bigger
- Three vertical sides with the same length
- Three sides, one vertical and two horizontal
- Four equal horizontal sides
- Three vertical sides with one bigger than the rest
Snap Groups as the name suggests are groups of the apps snapped together by using Snap Layouts. Snap Groups is an interesting feature that allows users to access their snapped apps directly from the taskbar after minimizing them.
With the release of Windows 11 users had to maximize the apps in the group one by one, however, the feature is now updated and the whole group can be accessed directly, boosting multitasking.
Windows 11 is presenting a cleaner interface while boosting a user’s productivity with these features. For instance, a writer can open and work on the browser tabs and the writing tool/apps side by side. It is quite helpful as users can efficiently multitask, get insights, and meet deadlines faster.
In this digitally growing world, the need of the hour is to employ new technologies that allow us to ensure maximum productivity. In this race against time, we often face challenges of time constraints. To meet our deadlines efficiently, there is no option but to multitask.
What is Multitasking?
Multitasking refers to executing more than one task at the same time. It has many benefits.

- It also boosts productivity because there is more time to complete tasks, allowing users to complete tasks earlier.
- Multitasking helps prevent procrastination. Get on to some other app for work if you feel exhausted from the one.
Users can add to their productivity even more with the use of SmartWindows.
