Having 2 windows open and also when clicking on mouse ?

Hi.

I need to have 2 windows open here, and also still having both opened, when I chánge between the 2 opened windows, and also as I scroll the 2 windows.
It can be made in Linux, but can it also be done in W7U ?

Are you looking for a dual-pane type of browser?
If I understand correctly, and you use Firefox, there is an extension (Big Screen) that will let you do that: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...lup=&advanced=

Many thanks for your kind reply.

Not exactly. Please see the attachment, that shows 2 opened windows, for setting services. I want to click on both windows without having to to close every time I click on the opposite window. This is boring, as the closed window needs to be opened every time I do this.

Boy! Did I ever get your question wrong!
As far as I know, there can only be one active window at a time.
Activating a window, however, shouldn't be closing the other(s).
Interestingly, I have gone through exactly what you're doing in this screen shot- a Services window & Black Viper.
When I go through this drudgery I usually split the screen vertically instead of horizontally.
That way you can see many more lines and not have to switch windows to scroll as often.
You can easily 'snap' a window to the left or right side of the screen by using the Windows' Logo Key in combination with the Left/Right Arrow keys.

You can simply click on the other window to activate it. (the Vertical split is a good idea too)

I know with 2 windows of the same type (specifically firefox), you can just move the mouse over to it and scroll without clicking.

Will that work for you?

@Lordbob75

Many thanks for your reply.

It is not a case where I want to open a browser.
I want to open a window showing Services, and a window opened to show a BlackViper window with his services settings.

It works ok now.

Look at the attachment please
