How do I quickly position two windows side by side using only the keyboard?

Raymond Chen

alexx is looking for a keyboard-only equivalent to the ctrl+click trick I mentioned a few days ago.

  • Ctrl+Shift+Esc: This opens Task Manager.
  • From the Applications tab, use Ctrl+Space to select the two windows you want.
  • Alt+W (open the Windows menu)
  • V (Tile Vertically)

Not as quick, but it still works. And it works even if the windows you want got converted into a group.

Of course, on Windows 7, you can use the Win+Left and Win+Right hotkeys. (Users with multiple monitors can couple this with Win+Shift+Left and Win+Shift+Right.)
