Windows 7: How to bring all related windows back to size

How to bring all related windows back to size

I tried to do a search for this, but didn't come up with anything. Basically I want to know how to bring all of the windows within a group back to their original sizes.

For instance let's say I've got two Word files open side by side. If I go to a maximized Google window to look something up now I have to click on both word files separately. After a while this gets to be a bit of annoyance. I'd like to know how to click on the Word tab and bring both word windows back to the size they were before another window was on top.

Hello Hotobu and welcome to Seven Forums.

I've had similar situations and haven't found a solution. Doesn't mean there isn't a fix, just that I haven't found it yet.

As a work around, I'll open another tab for the Google search, or whatever else I'm needing to do, and then switch between tabs.

Thanks for the link. Unfortunately there isn't a command to do what I want listed there (and I have a feeling there isn't one), but I did find some neat info there.
