    Tiling the Explorer folders?


    In XP I could tile or cascade all open Explorer folders by right-clicking the taskbar icon. Is this no longer possible?

    No, you can't do it in 10, in fact this ability was actually removed back in 7 and replaced with Aero-snap
    In Windows 7, this ability was removed in favor of Aero Snap—just drag a window to the side of the screen, and it’ll snap to fill half of the screen. Without a doubt, one of the great features in Windows 7… but what about tiling vertically? Or more than two windows?

    In 10 'snap' has finally got quite useable. Now on snapping to the side you get a choice of which other window you want to occupy the other half. Now snap the next one to a corner and it occupies a quarter of the screen, with a choice of which other one should occupy the other quarter. Inevitably, there's a tutorial on it....

    Thanks Bree, although disappointing to learn that flexibility has been lost.

    Disappointing to loose an old friend, I can sympathise there. But the (feature-poor) Aero snap in Windows 7 has matured a lot for Windows 10. It's actually quite useful now. Give it a try, you may be pleasantly surprised.

    Cascading?

    You mean like this?
    Make new toolbar (desktop) and you have all cascading folders... You can make folder with shortcuts and make toolbar out of it...

    If you want the older style All Programs menu, you have to install either Classic Shell or Start10.

    Thanks for all the further replies. @bro67: I am using Classic Start menu. Is that waht you mean?
    @Edwin: That operates on all windows, not just Explorer folders.
    @AndreTen: Could you explain further please, as I don't see what you mean.

    Yes. It has a bit of a learning curve. If you want to tweak your system a bit more, go to thewindowsclub .com and get the TweakUI tool. It will allow you to shut off Prefetch and Superfetch if you have a SSD, along with some other items that deal with the GUI. If you also are looking at a way to check hardware temps, get Core Temp from alcpu.com Very light weight and the guy that designed it only asks for a small donation for the tool.

    Thanks bro67. I couldn't find TweakUI for Windows 10 on that site. Only for Vista and Win 7. The closest I got was 'Ultimate Windows Tweaker 4.2.1' Did you mean that?

    If so, one immediate flaw is that there appearsd to be no pop-up Help. The UI includes this:
    "Just hover over a supported tweak to see its description." But nothing happens here.

    Re Classic Start Menu, that doesn't appear to affect the subject issue. Or is there a setting I've missed?
