Do you ever find yourself with too many windows minimized in your taskbar? It’s frustrating searching through the muddled mess especially when I have to look at two items at once! Minimize, maximize, adjust the size, etc! It gets really monotonous!
Some people are fortunate enough to have two monitors to streamline this process, but what about a tidbit for all the “single-screeners” out there?
If you are using Windows 7:
1. Drag the title bar of a window to the left or right side of the screen until an outline of the expanded window appears.
2. Release the mouse to expand the window.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 with another window to arrange the windows side by side.
To return the window to its original size, drag the title bar away from the top of the desktop and then release.
To snap an active window to the side of the desktop using the keyboard, press either Windows logo key +Left Arrow or Windows logo key +Right Arrow.
For those using older versions of Windows, hold Ctrl and Left-click a couple of windows on your taskbar. This should select both of them. Now, Right-click and choose either “Show Windows Stacked” or “Show Windows Side by Side”.
The windows you have selected should pop up; size adjusted and ready for your viewing! Now it’s time to put it to the test and chose what works best for you, side by side or stacked.
