For me, that tool is FancyZones, which is technically a feature of Microsoft’s broader PowerToys app for Windows enthusiasts. FancyZones lets you drag and drop windows into customizable split-screen views so you can multitask more effectively. Just hold Shift while dragging a window, and you can instantly snap it to a pre-defined portion of the screen. While FancyZones has been around since 2019, when Microsoft first revived the PowerToys concept, I initially dismissed it as being too burdensome…
