Recently got a Dell dual core, 250mg hd. 2gb's of ram. Why can't I have several windows open at once?, If I move from one window to another, I lose the first one. Any ideas anyone?

Try My Computer; Tools; Folder Options; General and tick 'Open each folder in its own window'.

To arrange all open windows
Right-click an empty area on the taskbar.
Click Cascade Windows, Tile Windows Horizontally, or Tile Windows Vertically.


Windows that are reduced to taskbar buttons will not be displayed.
To restore your windows to their previous state, right-click an empty area on the taskbar, and then click Undo Cascade or Undo Tile.

Does it help?

Right click on the task bar and choose cascade or tile

My mind went that way, but as blackpat was on about several 'windows' I wondered if he meant that - or what I tried to help with!

Good point.

I guess we'll have to wait until blackpat posts back with further input!

Not helpful this since it is not answering your question, but if you are looking for instant, and I mean instant, movement from one site to another then try upgrading to IE7 and use the tabbed browsing.

Or Firefox...:-)

Jackcoms, I tried your idea and it works fine, but only on 2 windows.

Chris & Rawprawn, I tried yours and it give the same only 2 windows only in cascade form. Is it possible to have say 3/4 windows open at the same time?

Anskyber & Stuartli. I'm not really bothered about super speed.

Thanks all for helping me.
