Windows 7: Can't minimise documents

Can't minimise documents

Until a couple of weeks ago, I could view and work on two or more docs on screen at the same time using the middle Minimise function, but it's suddenly stopped working on most if not all Word docs. Can anyone suggest a fix?

Hi TinaAbbey, welcome to the Forum.

I assume you are using a version of Microsoft Office, so it would help if we knew which version it is. Have you tried an Office repair & is Office up to date.

Do you mean the "Restore Down" function is not working when you are using "Show Windows side by side" so you can work on the 2 documents together, or is there some other problem.
