If you are working with different programs at the same time and want to switch back and forth from one open window to another, then the Alt+Tab switcher comes to mind. But Windows 10 introduces a new way to select any of the open windows. In Windows 10, you can make it show all the open and active windows side by side, so that you can see their contents visually at the same time. Of course, you would be able to select any of the windows shown in the side by side mode. This is really a great feature if you want to multi-task and work with several windows at the same time.
Here is how you can show all the open and active windows side by side in Windows 10:
- Make sure that you have at least two windows open. Then right-click anywhere on the taskbar and select Show windows side by side.
- This will show you all the open windows in a tiled interface. The windows are resized according the number of windows to be displayed. You should note that windows that are minimized are not shown through this side by side interface.
- When you are done and have selected a window that you want to work with, you can close the side by side interface. You can do this by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting Undo Show all windows side by side.
Conclusion: You can show windows side by side in Windows 10 to pick the one you want to work with easily though a tiled interface. It can be used to compare the contents of different windows or find a window that you are looking for.
