[DEV TEAM RECOMMENDATION] Float Left/Right for the Video

This is just a recommendation for the Dev Team.

So I have been coding for a while now and I find it really hard when I watch a video and the "Workspace" is always in the way of the video and it really bothers me, I don't know about other people if they have the same problem but I really find it annoying. Maybe if you guys could make an option that allows people to choose whether they want the video to be on the left/center/right. This would be great because it will allow people to either have their video on the left/right and their workspace on the opposite side. I would not be complaining about this if I had a second monitor but at the moment I do not and it is hard for me to always adjust the workspace window so I can watch the video. In conclusion, my workspace always gets in the way of the video that I'm watching and it is pretty frustrating. I always have to resize the workspace's window so I can watch the video. A simple way to fix this issue is by adding a "float(or something like that)" that allow people to choose on which side they want their video to be on, "left/center/right". I hope that I can see something like this in the future.

Thanks Devs!

Hi Stivan,

You can send suggestions to help@teamtreehouse.com - see 'How do I recommend new content/new suggestions?' on the Treehouse Support page.

Not sure what operating system you are using and maybe you already know, but on Windows (7+ I think) you can split the screen in 2 using hotkeys. For example hold windows key + press left arrow. The window will snap to the left of the screen. See Snap your Windows

To make one side bigger you can just click and drag between the windows to resize.

Pretty sure you can do something similar on macOS also but I haven't tried it.

I usually work on just 1 screen and use this shortcut all the time.

Hope this helps :)

Hi James,

The "windows key + press left arrow" does help a lot thank you so much!!! As for the "send suggestions" I will look into that later.

Thank you so much!

No problem :)
