Confirmed. Avant may not support these shortcuts since it put the frame and page pane in different processes.
It ever worked in any Avant version?

Build 21 didn't fix it.
Sometimes the shorcut keys work when AB is maximized, I mean not in F11 ou F12 mode.

The Win+Left/Right/Up/Down shortcut keys to maximaze or dock the window to fill half of the screen is not working on AB2013 Ultimate build 12.
After clicking 3 times, the Win+Left/Right/Up/Down shortcut keys open a blank page with no menus and no bars.

It seems that the blank page is the frame of the whole Avant browser.When I close the blank page, Avant is closed at the same time.
The shortcut is useless either.
Is this same with yours?

I have noticed the same issues with Win7 (32-bit) with Ultimate 2013 build 107 (Aero Glass). The previous version used to work fine for me, but has since stopped working. I have tried focusing on the buttons, but this opens a new empty window that does react to the Win button + left, but is separate from the main AB window that is still there.

It's happening again in build 108.

Is this functionality going to be supported anytime soon, very frustrating when every other application I use can dock. I often wish to dock Avant Browser to the side, but cannot.

I'm not sure either. If there is no new big version, the current situation will continues.

I just discovered this browser, and it's an amazing replacement for Opera 12.
... but the lack of a proper acting UI means that it's almost impossible to use.

I'd suggest switching the UI skin (I personally use AthenX)

Hrm, I tried that. It's a nice skin, but still doesn't respond to any of the aero snap options (WindowsKey+Arrows, or click-dragging the title bar)...

I'm not sure any of them work with the Aero snap unfortunately.

Ok! Thanks for the quick reply. It sounds like the browser is still very active; is there a plan to get this fixed in the future, or is it by nature of the skinning that it won't be able to get fixed?
