Hi yes that works perfectly but i was just wondering why the click on the task bar to get the windows side by side dont work as i would like or as it should, thinking maybe it has something to do with the resolution or the fact my screen is 22 inch wide.

Thanks anyway.

I just did the same on my 24 inch wide screen.
I opened two different graphics programs and went to task bar and scrolled "windows side by side" and they opened evenly. My resolution is 1920 x 1080. What resolution do you have yours set at?

edit on resolution....1920 x 1200

I am set on 1600X1200 it is the only one that looks ok, well suits me anyway.

just dont know what it could be then, it does open side by side on a 2 out of 5 its strange.

I don't seem to have that problem and I use it quite often when I watch a YOU TUBE tutorial on one side and work on graphics on the other side without any glitches.
I will have a friend chime in and see if he can help...
