Windows is a graphical operating system, which can be used for multi-tasking. Each and every operation in Windows can be done with the help of a pointing device like mouse or touch pad. We are now so in habit of multitasking that seldom there is just one window open. We always have more than one window open in the task bar and we keep on switching between the windows while working on various applications. We might have Microsoft Word open along with a music player, and Internet Explorer. If we have to deal with the information in these windows simultaneously then we can try arranging these applications side by side so that we can have a look at both of them at the same time. This can be done by restoring the windows and resizing and rearranging them so that they appear next to each other. Windows has an inbuilt command to do the same in just two clicks.

In this post I will let you know how to arrange/tile two windows next to each other with just two mouse clicks.

Step 1: The basic requirement of tiling two windows side by side needs to have two windows open. So please open any two windows which you wish to arrange in a tiled position next to each other.

Once you open the windows you will get them listed in the task bar at the bottom. Now is the time to arrange them next to each other and to do so you will just need two mouse clicks – one right click, and one left click.

Step 2: Right click on the task bar to open the context menu.

Step 3: Click on the option called ‘Cascade windows side by side’

That would be all. Now you have successfully arranged the two windows you were working upon side by side in just two mouse clicks. Arranging windows this way makes them of the same size and nicely arranged from top to bottom. Please note that the option called ‘Cascade windows side by side’ which we get by right clicking the task bar may vary depending upon the version of Windows operating system you have, but it will have the command for this sort of arrangement for sure. Along with arranging the windows side by side you can also click to cascade windows or stack all the open windows. These three arrangements, of cascading, cascading side by side and stacking are available in almost all the versions of the Windows operating system by default, however, the names for these arrangements can vary.  Try doing the same with multiple windows and you will be amazed to see how smartly Windows will arrange all the open windows. The arrangement is neat and there is no need to keep on restoring and manually moving the windows.
