Obsidian Not Utilizing Windows 11 Snap Functionality

Steps to reproduce

Program windows within Windows 11 that have a minimize, restoremaximize, and close button in the top right support a feature called Windows Snap.

This is done by hovering over the center “restore/maximize” (button between minimize and close) on the top right of any program window.

Expected result

Normally when hovering over the restore button an operating system controlled contextual menu will appear, allowing for the current window to be resized or maximized to any number of pre-configured arrangement accross your desktops.

Actual result

When hovering over restore/maximize for Obsidian however, this feature is not implemented. No context menu comes up. You can only press the button to make the window floating or full screen, similar to in Windows 10

Additional information

This problem could be considered a feature rather than a bug. I’m seeing it as a bug simply because I believe the operating system does is in charge of managing this functionality and somehow Obsidian is blocking or inhibiting this from happening.

Yes, Open a FR for this.
