    Weird issue displaying windows.


    Prior to a recent set of Updates Windows 10 would let me display windows side by side with no issues. Since these updates (WHICH I HAD NO CONTROL OVER)... When I select display windows side by side I get windows didplayed one above the other??? Anyone any idea what the heck is going on?

    First, make sure your GPU (graphics) is updated from the manufacturer's website (i.e. NOT through windows update).

    Next, go into Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Screen Resolution and see if you can move the monitor over to the correct position you want it in.

    That's not the issue. Read my post carefully and you will see that up until the updates to Windows 10 everything was working as it should. Right clicking the task bar and selecting show windows side by side did exactly that. Since the updates, nothing to do with graphics drivers etc, instead of displaying the windows side by side as it originally did... I now get the windows shown one ABOVE the other not side by side. I've tried doing all sorts of settings adjustments but without results. I can't even identify which update did this. It's time Microsoft backed down and admitted publicly they screwed up YET AGAIN and we can have full admin rights and FULL control over settings and personalisation.

    Ah, now I think I know what you mean. My computer does it just fine. Try clicking one of the other options... Does something different happen? Let me search up abit about this and see if I find anything.

    I see exactly the same as Lord Zaeon (I've never used that before so can't say if it did work). Cascade is ok. (These are desktop programs).

    Yes, it would seem to be a small bug. MS likely will release a fix any time now.
