Windows Vista / Getting Started

Can't Line Up Two Windows on the Screen

With all its cut-and-paste stuff, Windows Vista makes it easy for you to grab information from one program and slap it into another. With its drag-and-drop stuff, you can grab an address from a contact's address card and drag it into a letter in your word processor.

The hardest part of Windows Vista is lining up two windows on the screen, side by side, to make for easy dragging. That is when you need to call in the taskbar. First, open the two windows and place them anywhere on the screen. Then turn all the other windows into icons by clicking their Minimize button.

Now, right-click a blank area of the taskbar and then choose either Show Windows Stacked or Show Windows Side By Side. The two windows line up on the screen perfectly. Try both to see which meets your current needs.
