Arranging Windows on Your Desktop

Some users like to run all their programs full-screen. Others like to look at all their open programs at once, in overlapping windows. Still other users like to arrange their windows neatly on their desktop.

If you're a neatnik, it's easy to have Windows arrange your windows for you. All you have to do is right-click an open area of the Taskbar and then select one of the following options from the pop-up menu:

  • Cascade Windows. Creates a stack of windows starting at the top-left corner of your screen and continuing diagonally down and to the right, as shown in Figure 4.6.
