Show your Windows Side by Side in Vista


Are you tired of resizing and dragging windows around so you can see them both at the same time, well here’s a quick tip that will quickly resize and display your windows side by side.

Hold down the control key and select two or more windows on the task bar, depending on how big your monitor is. Right click and select “Show Windows Side by Side“. You’ll now have the two windows perfectly sized sitting next to each other.

      The reason I googled this is because I’ve known how to do it for years, but it somehow doesn’t work now that I’m using Vista.

      The options to show stacked or side by side are grayed out.

      Actually the reason I googled this is for the same thing. I’m able to view most windows side by side, but when I try to view an office document and an IE window it is greyed out. Whats up with that?
