    When Windows 10 is functioning normally, you can hold the Windows/Start-key down and press the arrow keys to move and resize the active window.

    (i.e. Start-key + left moves the window to the left half of your screen;
    Start-key + right moves the window to the right half of your screen;
    Start-key + up maximizes the window to the full screen;
    Start-key + down minimizes the window to the taskbar)

    But it's not working! This has happened before and I don't know how to turn the feature back on. Any help?

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    Sounds to me like you may have the snap feature disabled.
    Check Control Panel -> ease of access -> make the keyboard easier to use
    Scroll down and make sure that there is not a check in "Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen"
    Uncheck it if it is checked and click OK
