    Use Windows Key + right arrow key and Windows Key + left arrow key for side by side viewing.

    It does that on mine too. It is already reported as a bug in the Windows Feedback app, so open the app, enter "Windows side-by-side" to bring up the feedback and upvote the feedback already there. However, using Windows Key+-> and <- does work for me.

    I'm having the exact same problem: RIGHT CLICK in the TASKBASK BAR > SELECT "SHOW WINDOWS SIDE BY SIDE > . . . and, voila, Win 10 stacks the windows, rather than placing them side-by-side.

    I tried: WINDOWS KEY > R / L KEY . . . but, that does nothing. Now, the DOWN arrow will make the top stacked window disappear, while the UP arrow will make it re-appear.

    So, I came here looking for a solution. And, what do I find: A Windows 10 expert resorting to the shop-worn "Well, it's a glitch, I guess" reply. Except, that . . . it's NOT a glitch. It's something that has worked before in: XP, Vista, Win7, and Win8. Now, we have Win 10 and what's worked before in previous OS's has now been "glitched."

    It is your computer, as it works here. run sfc /scannow from the command prompt and if file integrity is corrupt/compromised run the dism commands.

    I don't feel it is his computer.... I have a partial solution...I had to turn on the action of moving a window right or left to open it in that location...once turned on ( forget where) the show windows side by side and the win key plus arrow partially worked...they now open the windows side by side but overlapping unlike in win 7

    I have two windows 10 computers, same version, same build. It works correctly on one and not the other. I still haven't found out why. Ironically, it doesn't work on the machine where I need it the most. I'm posting this because some people think this feature has been disabled by MS. Not so.
