Solved Is there a Shortcut to SNAP in Win10 ?

Specs: Windows 10, 4Gb
I really like the feature of Snap where if you drag down the title bar of a maximized Firefox window, the window halves in size. However the auto-maximizing of smaller windows, I find a real nuisance. Is there a way to have the feature that I like, without having to suffer the irritation of the other ? I thought maybe a SNAP confined to a program of choice - like you can do with 'Always on top'. Does anyone know ? I run Win10 32bit v1803 on a PC
Another option might be a shortcut to toggle SNAP, so it is easy to cancel when it annoys, and easy to restore after the annoyance passes.

I halved the size of this Firefox window by pressing Left-Win & Down; but I did not want a hotkey to change the size of Firefox, rather, one to toggle SNAP. My mistake for not mentioning 'toggle' in my original post, as I INCORRECTLY thought a shortcut implied. Since Firefox does not resize back to full screen, I presume that 'hotkey' is NOT a toggle. Whether the pesky maximizing of smaller windows will happen - as I expect from SNAP - remains to be seen. Thank you for your response anyway.

PS - A later attempt DID succeed in maximising the window with Win-Up; I see that SNAP is still off, but I now have hotkeys to resize Firefox - that may do me ....

Those hotkeys really do like a satisfactory solution - even if they are not exactly what I expected.
