Windows 10 show windows side by side

Postby Peru » Sat Jan 27, 2018 9:48 am

Does anybody know if the "Show windows side by side" bug was ever resolved other than the snap workaround?

Hm, I never had an issue and I use it all the time. Just checked and it works with the latest updates.

I did read that a few folks do have it working. I may try and see if there is a graphics card update.

Doesn't seem to work for me. What I read is that you're supposed to right click in the middle of the Task Bar and then select the "Side-By-Side" option but that option doesn't show up for me.

Oops ... I stand corrected. IT DOES WORK! I was trying to click on the heading bar at the top of the window instead of the TASK BAR and the bottom of the overall window.

OK, I got it to work! :exc:

I updated the graphics card with a clean install and it still didn't work.

I tried Windows + Right arrow and that didn't work either. Then I noticed the Windows key wasn't working, so I opened notepad and found out that keys that I had remapped with KeyTweak did not carry over the remapping when I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 recently. I hadn't done any editing since then, so I hadn't noticed.

I remapped the keys and restarted the computer and then the side by side and Windows + arrow were working. I suspect that the remapping had nothing to do with the side by side issue and that I just needed to restart the computer after the GHPU driver update.

I spoke too soon. :(

It appears to be an intermittent problem. Sometimes a reboot fixes it, sometimes not.
I've disabled a few items in startup that may have been opening in the background and will see if that fixes it.
