Windows 7: Split screen - it doesn't seem to work on the left?

Split screen - it doesn't seem to work on the left?

I am trying out the split screen function - I move my web browser to the RIGHT side and it splits it half the screen - but when I move another web brower or notepad or anything to the LEFT hand side, it doesn't do anything. It just stays where it is. Any ideas?

Do you run multiple monitors by chance?

Check in display properties. Your machine thinks you have an additional monitor to the left. Disable it to get rid of the problem.
