    unable to tile two explorer windows side by side


    with windows 7 it was so easy, when I had two windows open, be it word, a browser or windows explorer to chose show windows side by side......they seemed to snap together or were easily encouraged to do so.

    with windows 10 the two windows seem to stay over to the left of the screen and both only take up approx 50% of the screen....I try and stretch them to, which works of a fashion but not remembered next time I start the PC....

    not sure urge if there is something I should be doing to make this work better...

    thanks

    will certainly give this a try....the one I was referring to,is on the task bar think it's right click tile as.....options at e right click on explorer tab on task bar.....was so simple, but maybe aero snap is better...
