Swap snapped app and full screen app capable or no?

I am assuming at this point, that there is no way to flip the snapped app to full screen, and the full screen app to snapped position.

I have tried everything, and see no option for that. This would be a fantastic option and I can only guess that it is being worked on.

I realize  you can change the focus of which app you can navigate in snapped mode, but I see no way to flip between them....

Hi!

Afaik, there is no "one click" option to swap those. Smells like a feature request

I tried this yesterday and found out the same thing. "Xbox Switch" really means you can control the app in the main window or the snap window. NOT switch to full screen. You can make the Snap window full screen but you lose the big screen app. If any thing I request the snap window bigger. IE is almost useless in the snap window size.

There are so many simple features that should be supported, but aren't, and this is one of them. I was trying to figure out how to do this for like 2 hours yesterday. I thought for sure it was user error on my part, since this was such a blatantly obvious feature. But after 2 hours I realized the truth of the matter, and shook my head...

I've been trying to do the same for the longest! It irks me that it isn't supported. "Xbox Swap Apps", this is an hour of coding and testing at the most! (and yes, I have context for this statement).

Also, I've heard that saying "Xbox Switch To <name of app that is currently in snapped window>" would make the snapped app go fullscreen, but even this doesn't seem to be working for me.

So instead of saying "Xbox Swap," you have to say "Xbox Unsnap, Go to (App), snap (original App)." Also factor in Kinect misunderstanding what you say at least once. This thing was rushed IMO

Agreed Giz.  "XBox Swap" should swap the 2 screens.  Frankly sounds like that should have been an easy one to start with.

Box preordered, reading up on snap. Absolutely shocked swapping snapped screens isn't already implemented.
