Tiling and cascading windows

As you learn applications like Microsoft Word, it might become inconvenient to switch back and forth between the GCFLearnFree.org lesson window and the Word window. The easiest way to learn is to have the Internet lesson window and the application window open so you can see both at the same time.

You can do this by cascading or tiling the windows.

Cascading windows are layered on top of each other. Tiled windows are next to each other. Windows can be tiled horizontally or vertically. If windows are tiled horizontally, they appear one above another. If windows are tiled vertically, they appear side-by-side.
