The Advantage Of Working With Multiple Windows
Often it is necessary for you to work with more than one Window,
such as copying information from your browser and pasting it into
MS Word. If you find yourself switching back and forth between
two Windows often, you may find that all this switching back and
forth can be a bit of a pain.
Try this instead.
On the top right corner of each window there are three small
buttons, Minimize, Restore/Maximize, and Close. The middle button
either shows the Restore button (two small squares) or the
Maximize button (one large square).
Now that you have both windows in view, you can easily copy and
paste, or drag and drop from one window to another. When you are
finished, you can click the Maximize (middle) button on each
window to return them to full screen.
- On the first window you want to work with, click the Restore
button. If the restore button is not shown, go to step 2.
- Click on the window header (blue bar on top of window) and
drag its top left corner to the top left corner of the screen.
- Move the cursor to the bottom right corner of the window and
when it changes to a two-headed diagonal arrow, drag the
corner of the window to resize it to fit half of the screen.
- Now switch to the second window you want to work with and
click its Restore button (if it is shown).
- Resize the window, same as step 3
- Click on the window header to drag and position the window
immediately to the right of the first window.
- At this point you may need to resize it again from the bottom
I'll bet you can think of many situations when this tip could
come in real handy.
