Altap Salamander

Disable drag-to-snap for preview windows.

What's affected?
  • Snap to edge
  • Drag to maximize
  • Window transparency when dragging

Altap Salamander is a Norton Commander-style file manager for Windows.

This compatibility shim disables drag-to-snap on Altap windows, as it can lead to crashes in Altap Salamander.

Can be disabled

This shim can be disabled in MaxTo if you go to Options, Compatibility, and clicking on Altap Salamander. You should find a toggle switch to disable it.

Note that shims should only be disabled if you have a legitimate reason to do so, and accept that disabling them may cause applications to crash.

What are compatibility shims?

Compatibility shims are our way of telling MaxTo that some programs react badly to being handled by some of MaxTo's functionality.

Each compatibility shim has a description text and a list of functionality that is affected. Some are small and do not result in loss of functionality, others cause MaxTo not to work at all (and the reason for the compatibility shim then is simply to prevent apps from crashing).

This list is kept up to date outside of MaxTo's release cycle, and will be updated automatically by MaxTo.
