Is there a way to tell explorer to open new windows beside already open windows - as opposed to overlapping them. I've been trying to find a way to do this ever since I tried Linux for a little bit and the file manager windows would open besides each other and contextually sized (rox file manager, I think it was). That was amazing.

I've been trying to figure out a way to get something equivalent in windows every since - no dice.

Is there a way to this in win10?

Also, what are the steps/folders required to manipulate the "all apps" menu (as well as the start menu) : I've got folders in there from which I wish to "extract" the content so that it isn't in a folder anymore and conversely, I would very much like to be able to add folders of shortcuts to the main start area to function as the win7 programs menu.

Sorry if all this was already answered elsewhere, all I've found about customizing the start area doesn't deal with what I'm hoping to do - or if it does, I did not figure it out...

Thank you.
