Windows 10: Can No Longer View Two windows at once Solved

    Can No Longer View Two windows at once

    Until recently, if I wanted to minimize a window or resize it, I only needed to click the tiny square in the upper right corner. I could have two windows open on my desktop at the same time (viewing both and transferring information from one to the other.) I can no longer do this.
    Does anyone know if this is a function of a Windows update or an issue with my computer in particular? Is there a fix for this? I despise that I cannot look at two things at the same time and would greatly appreciate any help or insight anyone has to offer.

    Hi, do you have a system restore point you can use to reverse some change that might have caused that?

    Which is your Windows build?
    Windows key + X, winver

    Have you installed or configured any programs that might have caused this?

    Or was there a Windows update around that time that might have caused this? (See update history).

    I've not yet noticed any similar reports.

    You haven't accidentally switched to Tablet Mode, have you? That could explain it.
