Welcome to the Seven Forums, plum001. To cascade your windows, you can right click on the task bar at the bottom of your screen, and then click on "Cascade windows".

Shake minimises all but the window you are shaking. May not be available in the Starter edition of 7 since it has no Windows Aero.

When window is full size. Grab the top of the window with left click and hold as if moving. On IE above the Tabs. Then move the mouse quickly back and forth and the window will reduce size.

Click the blue lettering for link to forum tutorials.
This will show you how to SNAP to half screen.
Snap a Window to a Side

SNAP to Full or reduced size.
Maximize and Restore Down a Window by Drag and Drop

As Britton posted.
Without Aero I don't beleive it will work.

Win 7 starter only comes in 32 bit, are you sure about your system specs?

Basic has limited aero and does come in 32 and 64 bit.

Windows 7 editions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That being said,

Aero Snap - Turn On or Off
