    Taskbar windows arragements not working like older Windows versions.


    Hello,

    Using Windows 10 1909 (18636.720)

    This is something that I think has been discussed in the past but now that I have finally shutdown for good my last Windows 7 VM, continues to bother me. I'm having this issue with Windows 10 when arranging multiple windows. On previous Windows versions if you went to the task bar and right clicked on it, you have the options to cascade the windows, to stack the windows or to show the windows side by side. With Windows 10 the options are listed but when they are selected the windows are not properly positioned. For example the windows are not positioned side by side and empty spaces are always present in the screen. Not only that but also the borders of the windows are not neatly close together and gaps are left between windows borders. All what I have been able to find on other forums or blogs is to use what is called Aero Snap and to use the arrow keys in combination with the window key or use the mouse to move the window to a border and then select the other windows etc, etc. That is not a valid option for me:

    1. There are moments where I have more than four windows.
    2. There are moments where I need all windows vertically adjusted side by side equally sized occupying the entire screen without gaps between windows, and the last point...
    3. Using the task bar - right click - selecting the window arrangement option is way more effective, efficient and easy than using multiple key combos or using the mouse to manually arrange the windows.

    I was told to turn off the Aero Snap feature but then other problems arise after deactivation and it makes no difference with or without Aero snap when you select the windows arrangement options from the task bar they didn't work. Then I read something about stopping or closing all metro apps but that's not clear to me and having to close multiple metro apps each and every time that I have to arrange windows is not a valid option and I don't use metro apps that much except for those like the Windows 10 settings. Is there a way to fix the problem so that when you select the windows arrangement option from the task bar it works properly?

    Please advise.

    :)

  3. Swapping to an older version of windows

    Is there still an official way to drop back to an older version of windows, I honestly don't mind using a 3rd party way. If possible, can you list step by step instructions or a link to an easy to use website. Thanks.
