XP / Vista: Tile Windows Side-by-Side or One-Over-Another
Quick refresher how to tile windows vertically or horizontally. This works with vista, XP, 2000, 2003, and most other windows environments.
I know that we have created recipes about this in the past, but I wanted to refresh people on how easy it is to tile windows.
By clicking on the windows in the taskbar while holding down the CTRL key, you can select multiple windows at once. Once more than one is selected, you can tile them by right clicking on one of the entries in the taskbar and select the tile option from the context menu.
- 1. Click the taskbar entry for the first window
2. Hold down CTRL and click the second window
(Both of these taskbar entries should now be colored differently)
3. Right click one of the selected taskbar entries
4. Select either tile vertically or tile horizontally from the context menu
