View Two Windows Side-By-Side Using Smart Window

Smart Window gives an opportunity for the user  to view two windows side-by-side in Windows 7 without having to manually re-size either window. If you don’t want to use Alt-Tab to switch between 2 windows then Smart Window is useful for you.

Here is some suggestion for an earlier version of Windows like Windows XP or Windows Vista, to split and arrange open windows tip.

Firstly, Click and Drag on the top title bar of the first window so your mouse pointer hits either the left or right side of your screen. Then let go of the window when you see the outline of the window re-size to ½ of the screen.

After doing this, you choose the other window you want to view on the side of the first window and Click and Drag the 2nd window to the opposite side of the screen until the mouse pointer hits the side of the screen and resizes to the other ½ of the screen.

If you want to do these steps by using Windows key and the right and left arrow keys then you should follow these steps, which are under as follows–

  1. While pressing the Windows key on your keyboard, press either the Right or Left arrow to move the open window to either the left or right portion of the screen.
  2. Then choose the other window you want to view to the side of the window in step one. When using the Windows key for this step, as described in step one above, use the opposite (right or left) arrow button that you used in step one.

Another different way to get Windows side-by-side is also here under–

At first, Click and drag the window so the mouse pointer hits the top of the screen and let go to put the window back to regular size.

Then, if you just want to view a single window, click a blank spot at the top, and while holding the mouse button down, shake the window you want to view. The shaking action will minimize all other windows to the Taskbar. To reopen windows that were minimized, click and shake the window you are using again.

And finally, Press the Windows key on your keyboard, and at the same time, press either the up arrow or the down arrow. The up arrow will maximize the window and the down arrow will minimize the window.
