    Side by side not displaying or working


    Windows 1903 side by side and stacked does not display and will not function. This occurred all of a sudden after working.

    I copied your settings and it still works the same.. Side by side and stacking work when there is a screen or something on the screen not just a blank screen. I guess the right word is desktop. At any rate if there is content the features work but when blank they are grayed out. It is something I ever noticed before.
    Is that the way it should be.?

    That's what I get, too, maranna, with just the DT showing. Although there are other active windows, just all minimized. I think that's normal.
