I'm trying to tile my windows horizontally in Windows 10 with the same behaviour as the vertical tile achieved by pressing Win+Left Arrow or Win+Right Arrow. The behaviour being: the windows snap to eachother and take up all space on my screen. The only way I've found to achieve something similar is to open a group of windows, right click task and select Show windows stacked but they don't snap and don't take up the whole screen.

Win+Up Arrow maximizes and Win+Down Arrow minimizes.

Is there a way to do this?

  • Tile my windows horizontally with the same behavior as tiling them vertically. Open any window and press the Windows key + left or right arrow. If you're running Windows 10 it'll ask you which window to snap to the other side. If you're running Windows 7 it'll only snap one window. If you're running Windows 8, I'm sorry for your loss. – Brandon Jul 21 '16 at 17:17
  • Do you have the latest version of Windows10? Cnet and How-to Geek both mention it but as I don't have the latest version of Windows 10, I cannot verify their claims. – Don't Root here plz... Jul 21 '16 at 17:29
  • I have the March 8th, 2016 build. It's not the latest. I took a look at the pages you suggested. the How-To-Geek page said it was possible to use Snap Assist vertically but it doesn't work for me. It just maximizes the window. – Brandon Jul 21 '16 at 17:45

    On Windows 10, if you want to tile horizontally, say a number of command prompt windows, SHIFT+RIGHT click on the window group on the taskbar and select "Show all windows stacked". – Philip Murphy Feb 12 '17 at 20:13

I have a workaround for that which still requires manual adjusting: do the regular "snap to" procedure with the WIN key + arrow left or right and then, still holding the WIN key, press the UP arrow so the window becomes a quarter of the screen rather than only the left or right half. Release all keys, it will then ask you which window to resize to the other half; use the WIN key plus right, left, up or down keys in the same way, to arrange the other resulting quarter screen underneath the other window. And then, finally, manually pull the right margins of both windows which should by now be horizontally tiled, to the end of the screen.
