Windows* 8 had a visual state known as the “snap view.” This was a fixed window width that an app could reside in when snapped. The window is fixed at 320 pixels so the user run two applications at the same time. Windows 8.1 Release Preview changed the behavior of snap view. When a window is snapped, the minimum width is 500 pixels. The width can be modified in the project manifest file. Up to four apps can be snapped concurrently, enhancing the multitasking experience when compared to Windows 8.
