    Opening side by side multiple windows?


    Windows 10 apparently doesn't allow multiple windows side by side. In some (most?) forums where you 'drag' pics to a "box" to attach to a post,... how exactly are you suppose to do that?

    Here's what you get when you right-click a blank area of the Taskbar:

    It actually still does. All OS's allow windows to sit side by side.

    I just click on Restore Down and then resize and drag as required.

    That's NOT what I get when right-clicking on the task bar. That's why I was wondering if you can show open pages side by side.

    Showing pages will be more up to the program/s being used, showing the open programs Stacked or Side by Side is the function of that choice on the right-click of the taskbar. It would be possible to open 2 or more instances of a program with different data files then make a choice or stack or side by side. It's just a case of Windows capability followed by what programs can do. Or in other words it's that programs open in windows but data opens in programs.

    Sorry Berton, no offense but your talking like my son. He's an electrical engineer and a computer guru... I can't understand him either.

    What I'm trying to do is have a forum page open next to "My Photo's". When making a post, some forums have a spot to 'drag' a pic to, to add a thumbnail you my post. In my old Windows OS I was able to right-click in the taskbar and it would show several lines, two of which said, "show windows stacked or show windows side by side". My Windows 10 doesn't show that. Rather, it shows,... "Show app icons,... Show people on taskbar,... Show all notification icons,..." etc. Nothing about stacking or side by side.

    You're in 'Tablet Mode'.
